The Scenic Group has made some enhancements to its UK sales team in preparation for a huge year of ship launches and increased trade activity.
Sales manager for the North, Jonathan Davies has been promoted to take on a new role as national key accounts manager for the region, while colleague Wendi Hardy moves across to oversee national key accounts in the South.
Meanwhile, William Young, pictured above (current sales manager Scotland, Northern Ireland and North East England), has been handed additional responsibility for increasing agent awareness of the group’s touring product, as well as strengthening ties with the SPAA north of the border.
New to the team is Emerald Cruises marketing executive Lewis Quigley, who will take up the new position of sales manager for the North and Central. All roles will become effective on April, 1, 2023.
“The launches of Scenic Eclipse II and Emerald Sakara will soon be upon us, so it makes sense to ensure our sales team is the strongest in the business,” explained Stafford. “Over the last 12 months we have dramatically increased our trade presence, and the huge interest in the new vessels will only focus more attention on what we offer.
“What has become clear is that we needed dedicated sales people to handle the big national accounts. These partners have huge potential for us, and I’m sure Wendi and Jonathan can deliver great results.
“Our sales managers will continue to work smartly with retail, home working and driving the niche medium size operators. We are intent on boosting our brilliant touring proposition and developing new partnerships with luxe agents across the country.
“I’m delighted to welcome Lewis to the sales team. He comes with fresh ideas, great brand knowledge and I’m sure agents will notice the huge enthusiasm he brings. We can’t wait to see what he can deliver.”
