Vertical Travel Group has appointed a new sales manager for its homeworking division.

Suzanne Brunt, who currently works at Thomas Cook-owned Freedom Travel Group, will start in the newly created role at Your Holiday Booking on August 19 and manage supplier relationships.

She has previously worked with Vertical founder and chief executive Peter Healey at both Freedom and Future Travel in Burslem where she was a homeworker.

Your Holiday Booking has about 80 members.

Last week head of Freedom Kelly Cookes left the business to join Thomas Cook as head of commercial partnerships.

Matt Harding was promoted to head of the consortium, which also made a number of other appointments to its commercial team.

Healey said: “Suzanne is extremely experienced and has an extensive supplier network that will complement the existing Your Holiday Booking team and provide valuable additional resource to support our growing network.”

Vertical also operates a tour operating division, Instant Holidays, travel technology platform, Vertical Systems and a bed bank.
