Riviera Travel adds to trade team with two appointments

Riviera Travel has made two appointments to its trade sales team.

Martin Page – previously strategic account manager at Classic Package Holidays – has joined as a new key account manager.

Page will be field-based and manage a number of accounts, to help them grow their Riviera Travel business and develop new relationships.

In addition, Ashley Walker has returned to the operator as an office-based agency sales administrator, following a brief period outside the travel industry.

He will answer agent questions and enquiries, and additionally work alongside Riviera Travel’s assistant manager of  agency sales Darren Mussell and the on-the-road team, to help grow the company’s group business.

Both Page and Walker will report to head of agency sales UK & Ireland Thomas Morgan.

The Riviera Travel trade team is now eight-strong. Other recent appointments include Jessica Payne as business development executive and Claire Hills as a key account manager.

‘An exciting time’ to join Riviera Travel

Page said: “It’s an exciting time to be joining the Riviera Travel team.

“With a well-established portfolio, I can proudly go to our agent partners armed with award-winning product. I can’t wait to be back out on the road.”

Morgan added: “I am delighted to have Martin and Ashley joining the agency sales team. Martin is well-known and respected among agents and will be a massive asset.

“We have worked with Ashley before and know how good he is, so are thrilled he is re-joining. The addition of both is a real testament to our continued support for the trade.

“We have seen encouraging growth this year and want to make sure we have the resources available to help agents develop their river cruise and escorted tour business.”
