Bourne Leisure has promoted sales and marketing manager Erman Housein to head of trade sales & marketing.

Housein will be responsible for Bourne’s trade strategy across its three brands – Butlin’s, Haven and Warner Leisure Hotels.

He has worked for Bourne for 15 years, and will be supported in his new role by national sales manager Louise Tansey and trade marketing manager Krishna Thakore.

Housein said: “I am excited to be taking on this new role. Trade sales is an extremely important area of our business and produces excellent results, so my main aim is to continue to drive this forward with the support of Louise, Krishna and the rest of our experienced team.
“We have some exciting plans in place for this year and beyond and I’m keen to build on our already excellent relationships with the trade.”

Former head of Bourne travel trade Neil Davies left the company in December to join holiday homes company Park Leisure.
