Wendy Wu Tours sales and business development managers Karen Milward and Mark Harris are to leave the business this summer.

Milward, sales and business development manager, East of England, leaves at the end of July, while Harris, senior sales and business development manager for the south, departs in mid-August.

Milward will join Premier Holidays as sales and business development manager on July 30.

Wendy Wu said the pair would continue working as normal for the tour operator until their departures and stressed it was “business as usual” for the trade.

Mark Bloxham, managing director, Wendy Wu, said: “It always disappointing when great people need to move on, but in Karen and Mark we have had over twelve years of devoted service and we thank them both for their hard work and effort building our reputation in the industry. We are currently going through a restructuring process with our business development team to ensure we continue to deliver the exceptional service our trade partners have come to expect.  We look forward to announcing our new line-up soon.”

Earlier this year, Liz Ryan, previously business development director for the north west of England and the West Midlands, left Wendy Wu after a brief spell to return to Saga Travel. She has been replaced by Nick Hindle as sales and business development manager, west of England.
