Former Olympic Holidays chief executive Clare Tobin has been appointed a non-executive director of Seable Holidays, a tour operator specialising in tailormade trips for the visually impaired.

Seable says it offers holidays that are suitable for everyone from independent travellers to couples, families or groups of friends.

It also claims to be the only tour operator to offer a local, DBS-checked, fully-trained chaperone service to assist guests throughout their holiday.

Tobin announced in December last year that she would be stepping down from her role as Olympic chief executive in January 2020.

She had been with the Greece, Cyprus and Greek Islands specialist for three years, first as chief operating officer, before being promoted to chief executive six months later. She took over from George Michalias, who assumed the role of chairman.

Tobin said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Seable as non-executive director at such an amazing holiday business, with such a strong purpose. I am looking forward to a new challenge.”
