A former Thomas Cook manager has joined long-haul operator If Only following a restructure of its business development team.

Jorge Quibell becomes a sales executive supporting head of sales Neil Sealy and head of partnerships Dominic Carrick in generating business from travel agents in the south of England and South Wales.

Quibell brings several years of retail travel experience to the operator, having previously been a cluster manager with Thomas Cook in the Midlands.

After an extensive training programme, he will be ready to take to the the road later this month to meet agents on sales calls, at events, workshops and conferences.
