Cosmos Tours has appointed Janet Parton to the role of head of sales to implement the tour operator’s sales strategy for both Cosmos Tours & Cruises and Avalon Waterways.
Janet will be responsible for overseeing relationships with agents and third party distributors to generate sales growth through the trade.
With 20 years’ experience in the travel industry, Janet has previously worked at Thomas Cook, Carnival UK and most recently at MSC Cruises where she was head of Sales.
Giles Hawke, Cosmos Tours’ CEO, commented: “Janet is highly respected in the UK travel trade and embodies the approach we take with our trade partners to be supportive, friendly and business focused.
“As we look to broaden our product portfolio and develop our agency relationships, Janet will be instrumental in helping agents grow their touring and cruise business with us.”
Janet is due to start her new role in early September with the Cosmos and Avalon sales team reporting into her.
