Riviera Travel has appointed Amanda Weir as agency sales support, as part of the company’s wider expansion of the agency sales team.
Formerly based in the operations department of the business, where she worked in tour manager relations, Amanda will provide travel agents with the support they need, in her new role.
“We are so pleased to have Amanda joining the agency sales team and know that she will bring a lot of support and assistance to our travel agents when it comes to events, training and enquiries,” said Joseph Grimley, head of agency sales. “It’s very important for us to build and strengthen our internal team so our agents have support and guidance with someone at the end of the phone who they know and trust.”
‘I’m really excited to have joined the agency sales team and to be a part of this growing arm of the business. I have had a great experience working for Riviera Travel so far and I am looking forward to working directly with the agents and to spread my enthusiasm in the team,” said Amanda.
The operator has been focusing on growing the department over the past six months, with Amanda’s move, along with Tamzin Bishop’s agency sales executive appointment and the promotion of Tom Morgan to key accounts manager earlier this year.
