AZAMARA has expanded its local sales team to help dedicated Regional Sales Manager Belle Osmic.

A team of four will now provide “more in-market support” to help support what Azamara described as a key region for its business.

NSW and Victoria will now be served respectively by two new Business Development Managers, Jessica Marsh and Kristina Sambaher, while Natalie Bax has joined the brand from the Royal Caribbean Group as a Business Development Coordinator.

The appointments come after the appointment of new International Managing Director Patrice Willoughby at the beginning of the year, and show the cruise line’s confidence in the trade in the region.

Azamara said the additions would enable it to introduce new cruisers to its ships, and that its new BDMs would be on the road to meet with luxury travel partners.

The expanded Azamara sales team will also stay in contact with the trade through online training sessions and weekly webinars.
