Former Bourne Leisure national trade sales manager Louise Tansey is to join the Vertical Travel Group as trade sales manager.
She will be responsible for representing the group’s Cyprus and Greece specialist tour operator Amathus Holidays, its Disneyland Paris specialist Instant Breaks and in-house accommodation-only supplier Bedbank.
Tansey will also work with Vertical’s homeworking teams and be the point of contact for its consortium travel agency members for the tour operators. She is due to join the business on October 4.
Tansey spent 13 years at Haven, Butlin’s and Warner Leisure parent Bourne Leisure, which pulled its trade sales channel in December 2020. She joined Cyprus specialist operator Biblio Travel in April to help with its launch to the UK market.
Vertical Travel Group chief executive Peter Healey said: “Louise is occupying an important role in the group. As a respected and popular person in our industry we are very pleased that she has chosen to join us.
“The next year or two are going to be critical for the Industry and Vertical Travel Group’s travel businesses.
“Louise has much to offer and a lot to do. I have no doubt she will be a great asset.”
Tansey added: “I’m really excited to be joining the Vertical Travel Group. It’s a delight to join a company that see its future working with the trade and values such an important distribution channel.
“I look forward to growing the awareness and sales over the coming years.”
