Stella Travel Services has unveiled details of its new UK management structure today following a strategic review of its operations.
The company, the UK arm of Australian-owned travel and leisure giant Stella Group, will now be overseen by a board of eight directors based out of existing offices in London, Chester, Glasgow and Bradford.
The board consists of managing director Andrew Botterill; chief financial officer Jens Penny; director of land product and purchasing Kevin Coles; director of product development Jason Edwards; director of air product Kaylene Shuttleworth; HR director Mary Wilson; IT director Andrew Bliesner and director of operations Caroline Macleod.
Stella’s tour operating brands and retail sales functions will be run on a day-to-day basis by four general managers – Andy Freeth (Travel 2, based in Glasgow); Tony Carty (Travelbag, Chester); Dave Clayton (Global Travel Group/Independent Options, Chester) and Paul Edwards (consumer direct sales, Bradford). All four will report directly to Andrew Botterill.
Managing director Andrew Botterill said: “This streamlined management structure will ensure that Stella Travel Services UK is best placed to exploit the core benefits of its well-known and much-loved brands.
“The business has market-leading technology, a superb and dedicated workforce and real strength in depth through its fantastic product range. We are all very focused on getting on with what Stella does best both here and in Australia – providing great holidays at unbeatable prices and being a real friend to both the travel trade and consumers.”
