Former travel agent Carrie Day has moved to Intrepid Group as business development manager for Ireland and Scotland.

She will be Intrepid’s first BDM to be based in Ireland as the operator targets growth from both regions.

Day previously worked at Flight Centre in Vancouver and Marble City Travel in Kilkenny.

The company also recently promoted Lynsey Kirk to the role of marketing manager UK, Ireland, Middle East and South Africa.

Kirk will be leading a team of three and dealing with all trade marketing activities for the operator.

Intrepid Group head of trade sales Andrew Turner said: “We are seeing excellent growth from both Ireland and Scotland and having a BDM dedicated to these markets will help to open up even more opportunities.

“We would love to work with agents on co-hosting customer events or joint marketing activities.”

Day added: “Responsible travel is something very close to my heart so it’s very exciting to be working with a company which is setting the bar so high in this field.”
