hires two distribution managers to grow brand in UK hires two distribution managers to grow brand in UK

Accommodation-only supplier youtravel has appointed two new distribution managers to its UK team.

Jodie Turner and Kate Simpson, who both left Holiday Taxis in December, joined the youtravel team on January 4 with the brief to grow UAE-based youtravel’s UK presence.

Both Turner and Simpson will report to youtravel’s UK general manager Matthew Carpenter.

Carpenter said: “Our mission for the next 12 months is very simple, to support growth in all existing partnerships and to grow our UK and Irish customer base even further.

“We have a strong UK presence at the moment and we need to work hard to sustain that, but we also know that there are many customers out there that we are not working with today, and we’re excited for Kate and Jodie to come in and help us achieve our goals-with the support of the rest of the UK Distribution team.

“Our principal status and the fact that we self-audit all of our own properties should put us in a strong position especially with the new travel package regulations being introduced later this year.

Carpenter said there has been further investment in youtravel’s hotel chain Labranda Hotels & Resorts, and said there was “further exciting news” to come from the chain in the coming weeks.
