Kuoni recruiting new trade relations team

Kuoni Travel is looking to expand its trade relations department with a new head and three new business development executives.

The long-haul operator is currently recruiting for a head of trade relations, who will be responsible for travel agent commercial account management and agency sales activity.

In addition, three new business development executives are being sought for the West Midlands, Northern England/Scotland and Southern England.

While two of these executive positions are newly created, one is to replace Shane Fortey, who is leaving to join Titan.

Director of sales and marketing Mark Lawrence said: “Kuoni is committed to working closely with the trade, ensuring that we respond quickly and efficiently to their requests, and support them in their activity.

“Over the past year we have seen significant benefits from having dedicated staff who cover specific areas out on the road and are able to understand the exact needs of individual agents, assist with in-store marketing and promotions and deliver training sessions.”

The new roles are in addition to Kuoni’s existing team of eight handling trade relations.
