Two new recruits have been made by Heathrow Express to bolster its commercial team.

Mark Eastwood joins from Virgin Atlantic as business development manager and Nicolette Miller as partnership marketing manager from Royal Bank of Scotland.

Eastwood will be responsible for increasing third party sales, driving new and existing commercial partnerships, and promoting the benefits of recent technology and API developments.

Miller’s has been charged with building the fast airport train brand by driving relationships with airline, hotel, sponsorship and retail partners.

She said: “What really interested me about the opportunity with Heathrow Express was the prospect of bringing my previous campaign and partnership marketing expertise to the travel industry.

“There are massive opportunities with regards to the projects we are working on, which we believe will have a fantastic impact on business delivery.”
