THE start of last month saw The Travel Corporation (TTC) bring together its touring brands under the more streamlined TTC Tour Brands umbrella, a move the company believes will make it easier for the trade to do business with each of its individual brands.
The restructure will see the newly formed banner become a single source for sales, marketing and operations across the Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Contiki brands, with additional benefits, according to the division’s newly appointed CEO Gavin Tollman, being less ambiguity for TTC in the marketplace.
In addition to a simpler brand structure, TTC has also been busy moving the chess pieces of its executive team, with Contiki CMO Toni Ambler appointed to lead the TTC Tour Brands portfolio across both Australia and New Zealand, while Insight Vacations MD Ulla Hefel Bohler has become Chief Operating Officer of the new division, Dee Marrocco takes on the Chief Marketing Officer role and Duncan Robertson has been charged with being the Chief Digital Officer.
Only weeks later, TTC unveiled more leadership changes, decisions which saw long-time Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold Head of Sales David Farrar and Insight MD Karen Deveson both part ways with the company. Meanwhile Andrew Young was appointed GM of Sales, leading a team of 12, while Tomas Malmberg became TTC Tour Brands’ new National Manager for Key Accounts and Development.
Anna Neville was also revealed to be the new leader of TTC’s newly formed “marketing centre of excellence”.
