Uniworld has expanded its sales team with appointment of Lucy Hone to newly created role of Sales Manager South.

Hone (pictured) started the role on 2 January and is responsible for supporting the brand’s existing trade partners in the UK’s Southern territories, as well as developing new relationships for Uniworld and its river cruise brand for young professionals, U by Uniworld, which launches on 14 April 2018.

Reporting into Dave Chidley, national sales manager, she joins James Howlett, sales manager north, and Theona Nechita, sales development executive, under the direction of Uniworld’s UK Managing director, Chris Townson.

Hone previously worked as Regional Sales Manager South for Scenic & Emerald Waterways. She has also held sales positions with Hurtigruten and NCL Cruise Lines.

“River cruising is my passion and I am so excited to be joining Uniworld and look forward to being part of such a fantastic sales team,” said Hone.

“Uniworld is an industry-leading luxury brand, brimming full of sales opportunities for the trade. I can’t wait to meet our existing sales partners over the next few weeks, and to develop new contacts for U by Uniworld.”
