Michelle Laverick has been appointed to the newly created role of head of partnerships – non-cruise at Silver Travel Advisor.

Laverick, who was formerly head of marketing at Collette UK, will work at the consumer travel advice site on a part-time basis and look after touring and adventure sectors among others.

She is also acting as head of marketing on a consultation basis for Asia specialist Transindus.

Laverick and UK managing director Carl Burrows left Collette in March following a “reorganisation” of the UK business.
