Paul Smith, the recently appointed interim CEO for Gold Medal and Travel 2, has announced the details of his new senior sales team who will support him across both brands.
Colin Currie is appointed head of sales B2B, Gold Medal and Travel 2. Previously the senior key account manager, the role will see Currie lead the sales team across both brands nationwide. Currie’s direct reports include the team of eight key account managers.
Karen Fletcher, formerly wholesale and Gold Medal agency sales manager, has been promoted to head of trade support for both brands overseeing all sales support operations across the Preston and Glasgow offices.
Smith said: “Recruiting from within has always been key for our business and I am excited to be able to confirm two significant promotions to the senior sales team, maximising the existing talent of the Gold Medal and Travel 2 families. Both Colin and Karen have worked with the business for many years and I’m confident that their raft of knowledge and experience will be invaluable in their new roles.
“I am working alongside our exceptional team with our suppliers, partners and agents to deliver business as usual in terms of the support, incentives, product, service and events that Gold Medal and Travel 2 stand for.
“Both brands are performing incredibly well and we all look forward to continuing to drive these businesses forwards to deliver more for our travel agent partners.”
Smith plans to make further senior sales team appointments over the coming weeks.
