Former Freedom Travel Group and Future Travel managing director Jane Atkins has joined the board at Hays Travel.
Atkins has become a main board director responsible for the development of homeworking and the Independence Group.
She said: “I’m really excited about the new challenge and about working for such a well run, independent travel business. I spent a long time working for a PLC and then moved to a co-operative.
“Now the logical step for me is to join an entrepreneurial, fast moving independent business such as Hays, where I can apply all the skills I have learned from my diverse experience within the industry.”
Hays has also made two internal promotions.
Linda Pyle has been promoted from national sales manager to head of the Independence Group and corporate travel, with full operational responsibility for both divisions.
Also, Sue Jarvis joins the main board as commercial director, in addition to her role as finance and operations director of the company’s three subsidiaries, Hays Beds, Hays Transfers and Hays Foreign Exchange.
Hays Travel managing director John Hays said: “I’m delighted to be able to announce the appointment of a high calibre individual to the senior management team here at Hays Travel.
“Jane Atkins has a wealth of experience in the travel industry and adding that to the promotions of Linda Pyle and Sue Jarvis we have a robust senior management team capable of taking the Hays Travel Group forward to the next level.”
