Aurora Expeditions is to go on a recruitment drive to capitalise on increased interest from the trade after the appointment of Craig Upshall, UK & Europe sales director, last year.
Upshall (pictured above) joined the polar specialist in March 2018 after almost six years at Rocky Mountaineer, and has one other team member in the UK, Karen Hollands, inside sales executive.
Upshall explained: “Within the next year we’ll be getting a couple of people on the road to help drive the message home.”
Robert Halfpenny, Aurora’s managing director, added: “It’s a lot of investment but we wouldn’t have done this if Craig hadn’t done a good job.”
Aurora Expeditions launches its first newbuild, Greg Mortimer, this year. A second is due in 2021.
