APT & Travelmarvel has appointed three new Business Development Managers following the promotion of Robin Griffiths to National Account Manager and the departure of Koral Lipton.
Robin’s previous role has been filled by Avalon River Cruises BDM Leize Sullivan, who will become BDM Central for APT on 1 March.
At the same time, Elaine O’Brien, Managing Director of The Travel Shop.ie and The Cruise Shop.ie for the past six years, has been appointed Travelmarvel’s first BDM in Ireland.
The company confirmed it has also appointed a yet-to-be-named BDM for the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. “The new team member will complete the operator’s agent-facing sales team and be announced soon,” it said in a statement.
Head of Sales & Business Development Brad Bennetts added: “We are thrilled to welcome Leiza and Elaine to the APT & Travelmarvel family, and to unveil our third new BDM hire soon.
“We worked hard to find the perfect candidates to deliver the professionalism, energy and support that will help our trade partners to thrive. Our goal was to create the best sales team in the market; with these expert BDMs in place, and the support of our call centre, marketing and design experts, I can confidently say that we have achieved just that.”
