Former Tradewind Voyages head of sales Mark Schmitt has joined Fred Olsen Travel as a project manager after leaving the tall-ship line earlier this year.

Schmitt announced his new role on LinkedIn today (July 22) and revealed the Suffolk-based agency had “some exciting projects in the pipeline”.

He wrote: “I’m delighted to share that I have started a new position as project manager at Fred Olsen Travel.

“I have had a great first few days in the office. We have some exciting projects in the pipeline. Watch this space for more details in the coming weeks. I can’t wait to get going with the team.”
