Intrepid Travel has unveiled an expanded trade team that includes promotions for existing staff and the appointment of Lucy Wildman as Senior Partnerships Manager.
Lucy (pictured above) joins from DMC Discova, where she was Senior UK Account Manager. Her industry experience also includes nearly a decade working at Trailfinders within both the sales and product teams.
In her new role at SPM, Lucy will be managing day-to-day relations and working closely with Intrepid’s key partners and agents in the south of the UK.
She joins SPM North Carrie Grant, Partnerships Manager Molly Cofman-Nicoresti, Partnerships Executive Jessica Mills and Natalia Marin Reyes, who has been promoted from Tailormade Sales Manager to SPM overseeing Intrepid’s affiliate and co-branded partnerships.
Joanna Reeve’s role as Head of Business Development and Partnerships has also been expanded to cover Europe, alongside the UK.
Joanna said: “A bigger team means we can give even more support to our partners and show more agents and customers what it means to be an Intrepid traveller. I’m excited to have Lucy joining the business as we roll out our plans for 2024 that support growth, collaboration and travel as a force for good.”
Intrepid has also had promotions in its UK & Europe sales team. They include Sales Manager Samantha Briggs taking on the role of Head of Sales and Team Leaders Leah Burton, Emily Boscoe and Andrew Everett being promoted to Sales Managers.
Intrepid is launching more incentives and experiences for agents this year, including a ‘Book 4 in ’24’ incentive, 50% off Intrepid trips, 25% off 2024/25 Antarctic season voyages and 25% off Intrepid Urban Adventures for agents, as well as UK mini-Intrepid experiences and fam trips to be announced at a later date.
