All Leisure Group has appointed Colin Wilson as group sales director as it creates a single sales team for the group to service all brands, according to Travel Weekly.
Business development managers for All Leisure Group, Tim Fleming and Brian Langford, along with Page & Moy Travel Group’s national account manager Julie Franklin will all now report directly to Colin, who was previously sales director for Travelsphere.
In his new role, Wilson will add sales responsibility for brands including Voyages of Discovery and Swan Hellenic, and will report directly to chief executive Ian Smith.
Smith said: “The appointment of Colin together with our new structure will enable us to consistently take a group view on the most effective way to channel our sales resources, ensuring efficiency and a consistent message. I look forward to a rewarding time ahead for everyone in the group and wish Colin well with his new responsibilities”.
Wilson added: "The synergies between the component products now within our group is strong and this new team will enable us to have a higher impact in a crowded marketplace. Our range of brands have a strong trade following and we all look forward to continuing to work with agents, aiding them to increase their sales with us”.
Andrew Dufty, currently marketing director of Page & Moy Travel Group, has been appointed group marketing director, in a similar move aimed to create a group wide marketing function.
