Sandals and Beaches Resorts parent Unique Vacations UK has appointed Riviera Travel’s Tamzin Bishop as business development manager for the UK.

Bishop becomes the eighth BDM for Unique Vacations UK – and will be looking after agents in the north, south, east and west of Yorkshire, as well as Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

She had been sales development manager at Riviera Travel, following roles as product assistant, HR advisor/administrator and reservations team manager at the escorted touring and river cruising operator.

Director of sales for Sandals and Beaches Resorts in the UK, Leah Marshall, says: “It is a really exciting time for Tamzin to join the business. Recent developments include upgrades at our flagship resort, Sandals Montego Bay in Jamaica and an ongoing focus on the wedding offering brings a number of new over-the-water wedding chapels. Tamzin has had some great experience in the travel sector which will be invaluable to our business.”
