Not in the Guidebooks is continuing to grow its team with the appointment of Michelle Thake as Business Development Manager.

Michelle has more than 30 years’ industry experience and joins from Ocean Holidays, where she also held the position of BDM.   

Prior to Ocean Holidays, she ran her own travel business through Travel Counsellors, and has also worked with G Adventures, Jet2holidays and Ras Al-Khaimah Tourism Development Authority.

Earlier this month the company announced it had recruited Jamie-Lee Abtar as Marketing Manager and Huw Price as Product Manager.

Sales Director Debbie Sowden said: “Michelle has extensive experience of the travel industry and a huge amount of knowledge and insight as to how agents operate.  She will be a great addition to our growing team, whilst helping us to provide even greater support to our agent partners.”

Michelle added: “I have been really impressed with how Not in the Guidebooks has developed over the last few years, and I am keen to be part of their success going forward. I am a huge supporter of offering holidays that are kinder to the environment and very passionate about how the industry can better support local communities. 

“UK holidaymakers are increasingly looking for different and more immersive experiences, and I am excited to be part of a business who is leading the way in this area.”

Not in the Guidebooks offers authentic experiential travel experiences designed and delivered by local hosts. Day experiences and longer itineraries all packed with local experiences, staying in premium accommodation, with transfers included.
