Escorted touring, river cruise and small ship specialist Tauck plans to increase its trade activity in the UK and Ireland following the return of national account manager Tom Dumbrell.
Dumbrell has returned to the role he was originally appointed to in 2020. In his 15 years in the industry, he has worked at Belmont, ROL Cruise, Fred Olsen, APT and Swan Hellenic.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Tom back to Tauck,” said Tauck vice-president global sales and reservations, Steve Spivak. “Tom will leverage his deep relationships with key accounts and trade organisations throughout the UK and Ireland to advance Tauck’s presence in the market.
“His wealth of first-hand experience, coupled with his extensive industry knowledge, will make Tom an incredible asset to our travel partners and advisors in the UK and Ireland as they grow their Tauck business.”
Spivak added that Tauck was planning a series of trade events over the coming months in the UK and Ireland.
“We continue to see enormous potential in the UK and Ireland,” he said. “There’s simply no substitute for having ‘boots on the ground’ in markets where we’re looking to increase our presence.”
