Leger Shearings names new product chief

Leger Shearings Group has appointed Rob Carroll as senior product manager.

Carroll reports to operations director Chris Plummer and will lead the product management team across both the Leger Holidays and Shearings brands.

He has 25 years travel industry experience and returns to the company where he started his career in product in the late 1990s, managing Leger Holidays' Oberammergau 2000 programme.

He worked for Wallace Arnold where he was part of the WA Shearings team that produced the first products and brochures of the merged company in 2004.

Carroll then spent 13 years in the escorted rail holiday sector, firstly as product manager at Great Rail Journeys, then running a similar, smaller business.

Leger Shearings Group CEO Liam Race said: "Rob Carroll is a great addition to the management team at Leger Shearings and brings valuable experience at a time when we are increasing our product offering almost daily, across both brands in the UK, Europe and beyond."

Carroll joins the Leger Shearings Group from group tours specialist, Airedale Tours, where he was commercial director.
