Andy Travis leaves Funway after more than seven years

Funway national sales manager Andy Travis has left the business after more than seven years.

Business development manager for Scotland, the north east, Yorkshire and Northern Ireland Amy Drummond has also left to take up a position with resort operator AMResorts, which announced a major partnership with Funway earlier this year.

Travis, who previously worked for companies including The Holiday Team, Youtravel.com, Medhotels.com and Monarch Travel Group, left the tour operator at the end of September to pursue new opportunities. Drummond left on October 6.

Funway said the departures were unrelated.

Head of sales Audrey Brooks-Wiggins said: “Andy was an instrumental part of our growth over the last seven years and we wish him success in his future roles.

“Amy will be working for AMResorts in a similar field sales role and we are absolutely delighted for her given our close partnership with AMResorts. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Amy in her new role. “

Brooks-Wiggins, former Thomas Cook head of trade partnerships, was appointed head of sales at Funway in August and is currently assessing the structure of the sales team.

She added: “We are looking to hear from talented sales candidates to join the expanding Funway team. We are committed to the trade and will ensure we have a robust and effective team in place to support our travel agent partners.

“We have already received numerous CVs which is testament to our reputation in the industry.”

The operator said it would continue to work with marketing company 3FOR to support its sales team for national trade events but stressed it would not use 3FOR as a substitute for inhouse staff.
