Georgia Lewis has joined Regent Seven Seas Cruises as regional sales executive, moving from singles holidays specialist Travelsphere and Just You.

Lewis will work with the luxury line’s business development team to boost business in Birmingham and in the south of the country.

Regional sales manager Scotland and Northern Ireland, Linda MacDonald, will now take on key accounts in the north of England as part of the sales restructure.

Announcing Lewis’ appointment, Paul Beale, Regent’s head of UK sales, said: “It is vital that we bring in the right personnel to nurture relationships with our high valued travel partners.

“I am sure [Lewis’] varied, professional experience in the travel industry will mean she is a great success in the role.”

Lewis has held consumer facing roles as a travel consultant for Affinion Travel, and has worked for both Thomas Cook and Tui.

Before joining Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Lewis held several positions with Travelsphere and Just You.

Lewis said it was a “great time” for the industry with so many new ships on the horizon, including Seven Seas Splendor launching in 2020.

She added: “I cannot wait to start developing new business and taking current business to new heights.”
