COLLETTE recently announced the addition of David Farrar as Head of Sales to help further the company’s growth in the Australian market. Farrar will commence his position on 5 September, as the company expands both its sales and reservations teams to meet demand.
Farrar joins from The Travel Corporation, where he led the sales team at Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold for 20 years before leaving in March 2022 after a company restructure. Farrar also mentored staff from brands across The Travel Corporation, providing them with monthly support and advice surrounding their current roles and career goals.
Looking forward, Farrar expressed enthusiasm about his new role with Collette.
“Collette’s handling of traveller bookings through the pandemic was truly exceptional with a straightforward refund policy. Their 24-hour cancel for any reason policy also sets the standard. I’m looking forward to joining the team and continuing the Collette success story in Australia.”
Executive VP Global Business, Christian Leibl-Cote, added, “Having seen for myself the market potential when visiting in May, now is the right time to build our Australian team. David brings huge experience and we look forward to rapid growth out of Australia”.
