APT & Travelmarvel has appointed Tara Jerrard to the role of Business Development Manager South.

Tara has previously held a number of other roles in the travel industry, including at Eithad Airways, ACE Travel Management, and most recently at travel management company Blue Cube.

Also, during the pandemic she worked as a funeral director.

APT said that ‘having excelled across different industries’, Tara will bring a fresh approach to the river cruise, small ship and touring operator’s trade partnerships in the south of England.

Reporting to Brad Bennetts, Head of Sales & Business Development, she will support APT’s independent retail agency partners, identify new business opportunities, and deliver training and strategic campaigns to agents.

“As a proudly trade first operator, we know that having the right sales team in place can be as important to our partners’ success as the quality of our ships and guest experiences,” said Brad.

“Combining sales acumen, rich industry experience, and a fresh take on our sector, Tara is well placed to develop business opportunities for agents across the south. 

“Getting straight to work on building momentum for our new fleet, UK-exclusive sailings, expanded small ship offering, and Small Group Journeys, Tara will be great asset to the team, and we are delighted to welcome her to the APT family.”
