G Touring, the operator behind brands Travelsphere and Just You, has hired an aviation director and people and culture partner.

The business has made the appointments to focus on its “growth through excellence” strategy for travellers and trade partners.

Julius Mills joins G Touring as aviation director, responsible for customer flight experience. He moves from Cosmos, where he was head of aviation and has previously held roles in UK flight operations at Tui, Jetsave and Crystal Holidays.

Sharon McBride is the new people and culture partner and her role will be to head-up the company’s human resources team and support the business growth strategy.

Her most recent role was human resources business partner at department store John Lewis and she led the company’s £400 million investment programme, Programme Q, which changed the business’ supply chain.

Alastair Campbell, managing director at G Touring, said “We are all very excited to welcome both Julius and Sharon to the team. We are seeing fantastic growth for Travelsphere and Just You, helped by our unrivalled customer guarantees and the awesome experiences that we offer on each of our tours to over 60 countries.

“Great people are absolutely key to our business. We look forward to working with Julius and Sharon as we continue to strengthen our team to deliver unrivalled customer service to our loyal travellers.”
