Riviera Travel completes trade team with southeast account manager hire

Bringing the operators trade team to a seven-strong one, Suzanne Warrens addition to the team on April 8th will cap off a series of additions to bolster the Rivieras trade representation.

Suzanne will bring with her a wealth of experience from roles at Saga Cruises and Sunvil Holidays among others.

Amanda Docherty was recently named as key account manager for homeworkers (starting on April 8th), following Chris McCloskey and Lloyd Morris, who both joined earlier this year.

Vicky Billing, head of trade and partnerships, said she was "delighted" to welcome Suzanne to the team, continuing: "She has extensive travel industry experience and will play a crucial role in developing our partnerships in the southeast. This appointment marks the final addition to our now seven-strong trade team, who are out on the road providing vital support for our trade partners."

Suzanne described the opportunity to join Riviera Travel as an "incredible" one, saying she "look[s] forward to working with our travel agent partners to grow the brand."

At Riviera Travel's 40th anniversary celebration this week, Phil Hullah, CEO, and Robin Shaw, CCO, outlined ambitious plans for the operator's future.
