Uniworld boosts sales team with new appointments

Sunday, Aug 07, 2022 0

In response to increased demand, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises has made a number of key appointments across the country.

The new appointments complement the existing team, all of which was in place pre-pandemic, and is headed up by Angela Sloan.

They bring a wealth of experience in the cruise and travel industry, as follows:

Edwina Coppock, Key Account Manager for the South, joins after eleven years as Head of Trade Sales at Titan Travel across its touring and river cruise product.

Prior to Titan Travel, she held roles at Hidden Croatia, Holiday Options, Kuoni and more.

Lucy Hone, formerly of Uniworld, Scenic and Fred, returns from retirement as Sales Manager for the South

Margaret McCorriston, joins as Sales Manager for Scotland and Northern Ireland, having previously held roles at Planet / Iglu, Minoan Group and Barrhead Travel.

Margaret’ appointment means Uniworld now has a dedicated sales representative based in Scotland.

She will be responsible for bolstering the key accounts there and in Northern Ireland, in response to an increase in luxury business demand.

Angela Sloan, Head of Sales, for Uniworld in the UK, said:” We retained our sales team throughout the pandemic, which has really helped us to maintain that continuity of service, brand knowledge, experience and strength of relationships.”

“Edwina, Lucy and Margaret already know the Uniworld brand, having worked with and travelled with us for many years.”

They join Dawn Quinn and Lee Evanson on Uniworld’s field sales team.

They are supported by an expanded marketing and reservations team of 12, split across London and Guernsey.

The whole UK operation is overseen by Chris Townson, Managing Director for Uniworld Boutique River Cruises in the UK and Europe.
