My ambition for some time has been to move into a more strategic events role within the travel industry – this position at Tipto presents the perfect opportunity for me and I’m incredibly excited to be joining the team.”

Lorna Willis-Edwards, events director at FORE added: “I’m delighted that Kellie has joined the Tipto family, I know that she’ll be a valuable asset to the team and her experience will be valuable in terms of us continuing to develop roadshows and supporting all of our members.

“With Tipto celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, I know she’ll bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the team that will ensure the 20th year of events and roadshows will be the best yet for our supplier members and agents.”
