Kieran Savill has joined escorted tours specialist Newmarket Holidays in the new role of Partnerships Manager.

He has moved from HF Holidays where he took up the position of Business Development Manager last September.

Kieran was previously Product Operations Manager at Hays Travel and has also held roles at Dawson & Sanderson, First Choice Retail and TUI.

In his new position, he will be reporting to Richard Forde, who recently took on the expanded role of Newmarket Head of Trade Sales and Partnerships.

Newmarket said the new role, which is part of an expanded sales team, ‘has been designed to help facilitate and support the next stage of growth’, with an emphasis on generating new partnerships across all available channels.  

Kieran will oversee the escorted touring company’s existing and future partnerships whilst helping to deliver business growth and expand revenue. 

Responsibilities include executing a comprehensive partnership strategy, identifying new partners, and playing a pivotal role in the leading of outreach, negotiation, and onboarding, said Newmarket.

Chief Commercial Officer David Sharman added: “As we continue to grow, this new role is critical in terms of generating new partnerships for the company across all available channels. With Kieran’s background, he will undoubtedly support the retail team, coming with added strategic opportunities gained with his insights from his retail experience.  

“We’re delighted to add further support to our retail team, which will boost prospects for growth for us and our partners. This also puts us in a strong position to seek out new partnerships and enables us to further enhance our product portfolio which will benefit all our current partners. 

“As we already have a strong relationship with Kieran, I’m delighted he is now part of our team.”  

Kieran said: I’m looking forward to bringing my commercial and strategic experience and background in partnership development across all channels to this award-winning company. As I already have a history of working alongside Newmarket Holidays, I’m excited to rise to the challenge and ensure that the company remains top of its game in the ever-competitive travel industry.”
