Choice Hotels Europe’s UK division has named Samantha Davies as UK account manager.

She moves from Ramada Jarvis Hotels where she was as cluster sales manager for the West of England and Wales.

Davies will be responsible for a portfolio of travel management company, travel agency and corporate booking agency accounts for Choice, the company behind the Comfort, Quality and Clarion brands.

Choice Hotels Europe has also signed a new preferred supplier agreement in the UK and Ireland with hotel booking specialist BSI.

This follows global agreements signed earlier in the year with American Express Travel Services, Carlson Wagonlit Travel and BCD Travel.

Other recently-signed agreements in the UK include Co-operative Travel Management, Calder and Bookotel amongst others.

Choice UK sales director Brian Garvan said: “We have corporate sales efforts at many levels throughout the organisation – global, international, pan-European and nationally – all working to ensure that we can provide TMCs and corporates with competitive pricing in all our franchised properties.”
