Riviera Travel has announced that three of its trade team will have expanded roles from tomorrow (1 December).

The river cruise and escorted touring specialist will now have a 15-strong trade team in 2024 and Stu Milan (pictured, middle) will head up the team, under a new role as Trading Director.

He will continue to oversee the trade, international and group functions and will now have overall responsibility for revenue management and agent activity across the business. He will continue to report into into CEO Phil Hullah.

Vicky Billing (pictured, left) has also been promoted to Head of Trade and Partnerships UK & Ireland, with responsibility for trade business alongside her current partnerships remit. Riviera announced last week it has re-opened its European river cruise and select touring product to the Irish market, with Vicky tasked with driving trade relationships and sales.

Tom Morgan (pictured, right) has been named Head of International Sales and will manage overseas sales activity. He was previously Head of Trade and will continue to report to Stu.

The expansions come as Riviera has also announced that trade activity is up 110% year-on-year.

Phil Hullah said: “These are very exciting times for our trade team as we further enhance our strategy and activity across the UK, Ireland and overseas. With Stu, Tom and Vicky in place in their expanded roles, we have every confidence we will meet and exceed our agent-friendly growth plans.

“Stu is the ideal leader and his oversight will ensure our trade delivery continues apace, while Tom’s wealth of experience means he is perfectly placed to head up our international aspirations. Vicky has made a very favourable impression in a short time and will continue the excellent progress we have made under Tom.

“The trade remains a key focus and we look forward to our agent business further going from strength-to-strength under their direction.”
