Knock Travel proprietor Doreen McKenzie has been elected to the Abta board of directors to represent retailers with an annual turnover of less than £20 million.
McKenzie founded Northern Irish travel agency Knock Travel in 1990, and is current chairman of the association’s aviation committee and retail fund committee.
She has also been a representative on Abta’s council of regions and fills a place on the board made vacant after the previous incumbent, Britaly Travel’s Daniele Broccoli, was given a non-elected position.
In addition, Sunvil Holidays’ Noel Josephides has been reappointed to the Board representing principal members with a turnover of less than £50 million.
Mark Tanzer, chief executive of Abta, said: “We are delighted to welcome Doreen to the Abta board of directors where her wealth of experience will prove invaluable to the association and our members.
Doreen has served on many Abta committees over the years demonstrating focus, commitment and passion for travel. We know that she will be an excellent advocate for retailers, ensuring that their views are effectively represented.”
The appointments will come into effect following the association’s AGM on April 24.
