Riviera Travel has appointed Lloyd Morris as its new key account manager for the UK & Ireland, effective from 22 January.
Morris will be primarily field-based and focus on building travel agent relationships and growing awareness of the line. He will report to Vicky Billing, head of trade and partnerships.
He was most recently business development manager at Globus, working across its Cosmos, Globus and Avalon Waterways brands. Riviera said it is looking to add a further two key account managers to its team.
The addition comes after the line last year announced plans to increase its field-based sales team by 75% with the recruitment of three key account managers.

“This appointment is further evidence of our commitment to our agent partners and making Riviera the most trade-friendly brand to work with.”
Morris added: “I am delighted to be joining the dedicated and talented team at Riviera at this exceptionally exciting time. I look forward to being part of their ongoing success and supporting trade partners in growing their Riviera sales.”
