Sue was unable to make it to the award ceremony in January due to a family bereavement.

The former Kuoni UK country head starts her new job as Thomas Cook’s managing director of scheduled businesses at the end of June.

She said: “I am over the moon to receive this award, it really means something at a time when I have finished 25 years at Kuoni and starting at Thomas Cook.”

Bigg’s division will oversee the recently-acquired Elegant Resorts.
