    Travellers Choice’s recruitment push enters a new phase today with the appointment of Paul Millan to the newly created role of network development manager.

    Based in Sydney, Millan is now responsible for driving an expansion of the group’s national network by attracting successful independent travel agency owners into the Travellers Choice fold.

    He brings almost 35 years’ travel industry experience to his new role, including more than 10 years working in the leisure and corporate travel sectors with organisations such as Thomas Cook, Carlson Wagonlit Travel and Travelscene Corporate.

    Millan’s career has also seen him hold key roles with leading travel technology companies, including Amadeus, Sabre and UK-based Traveltek, where he served as global director of sales.

    Managing director Christian Hunter said Millan’s unique skillset will further advance conversations with independent agency owners are who are re-evaluating their consortia arrangements and help Travellers Choice achieve its growth targets.

    “Paul has extensive industry experience and a proven record in delivering solutions for travel businesses,” Hunter said.

    “He will ensure that Australian travel agents truly understand the commercial advantages Travellers Choice shareholders enjoy in terms of unrivalled sales, marketing and business support, as well as the cultural dividends that flow from being part of a group that enjoys a 100 per cent satisfaction rating by its members.”

    Hunter said the creation of the network development manager will also benefit existing Travellers Choice members.

    “The addition of a dedicated resource focused on network expansion will enable our team of national business development managers to provide even more support to our member shareholders.”

    Millan’s appointment follows the successful roll-out of ‘Choose Day’ – Travellers Choice‘s first national member recruitment campaign. The ongoing promotion encourages independent travel agency owners to take a moment each Tuesday to learn more about the group and the benefits it offers.
