Trasun has appointed Dino Toouli to the newly created position of head of trade relations.

Toouli, formerly JG Travel Group head of trade sales, will be responsible for developing relations with agents across the UK.

He will also be initially focusing on the Lapland and Arctic Circle specialist tour operator’s growing Arctic Spirit collection.

Transun’s commercial director James Crawshaw said: “Dino has a wealth of industry knowledge coupled with years of experience and will help strengthen our current trade relations and expand the network of agents we work with.”

Toouli said: “With an existing following of loyal agents, it’s a delight to join a company that see its future working with the trade and values such an important distribution channel.”

Toouli only joined over-60s group tour specialist JG Travel Group in November last year.

The move comes just two months after JG Travel Group acquired Omega Holidays Group, where Toouli was head of trade sales.
