Former Holiday Taxis staff Jodie Turner and Kate Simpson have joined bedbank Youtravel as distribution managers as the firm looks to expand its UK presence.
Both report to the UAE-based accommodation supplier’s UK general manager Matthew Carpenter.
He said: “Our principal status and the fact that we self-audit all of our own properties should put us in a strong position especially with the new travel package regulations being introduced later this year.
“We’ve also seen further investment in our thriving group owned hotel chain Labranda Hotels & Resorts. Further exciting news to come on Labranda in the coming weeks.”
Carpenter added: “Our mission for the next 12 months is very simple, to support growth in all existing partnerships and to grow our UK and Irish customer base even further.
“We have a strong UK presence at the moment and we need to work hard to sustain that, but we also know there are many customers out there that we are not working with today.
“We hope that Kate and Jodie along with the rest of the UK distribution team can help us achieve this.”
