Ensemble Travel Group has announced the appointment of commercial analyst David Smith as Director Service Delivery, while Travel The World has launched a senior shake-up.
In preparation for the departure of Deb Corbett from Travel the World (TTW) to Ponant in mid-March, TTW managing director, Andrew Millmore, has announced a restructure of the company in which two long-standing members of the team will be promoted to new senior roles.
The restructure sees promotions for Juliana Higgins to Sydney-based national marketing & product manager and Sharon Hando to Gold Coast-based national sales manager.
Higgins and Hando bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their respective roles and will continue to represent TTW and its impressive portfolio of tourism products well for the years ahead.
Meanwhile, Sussanah Teng, becomes Sydney-based national marketing & product executive, in a support role to Higgins.
Ensemble’s new hire, Smith, brings over 15 years of practical knowledge gained in sales and distribution teams of airline, travel and retail industries. He was most recently commercial analyst at CT Partners.
He has also held senior roles at Jetset Travelworld, Qantas, Flight Centre, and Air New Zealand.
“Ensemble’s membership base in Australia and New Zealand has grown rapidly and will continue to do so throughout 2017, and David’s appointment reflects our commitment to securing the best in the business to support our members,” Ensemble senior vice president and general manager, Trish Shepherd said.
“David’s experience in successfully negotiating and implementing complex deals as well as his extensive network of contacts further strengthens Ensemble’s ability to deliver outstanding value and advantage in this market.”
