Helloworld assembles new post-COVID team

Rebuilding an account management team has been a top priority for Helloworld since Australia's borders reopened, and this week, the company formally announced its new-look division.

HEADED up by Group General Manager Sales, Steven Brady, the new structure sees former Viva Holidays State Manager NSW/ACT Darren Evans move into the role of Regional Manager NSW/ACT/QLD, while Mick Boylan returns to Helloworld to be the company’s new Regional Manager for VIC/TAS/SA/WA/NT.

Also returning is Helloworld’s on-the-road sales force, which Brady said the company has been pouring over for some months to get back in action and helping travel partners.

Helloworld veteran Kim Knight is now the Account Manager Qld alongside Jackie Gordon, while Jake Hilbert has become the Account Manager for Vic, while Robert Klingelholler is looking after WA/NT and Paul Groundwater has responsibility for SA and Tas.

Objectives of the on-road team will include supporting store agents who interact with the Helloworld Group brands such as Air Tickets and the wholesale business of Viva Holidays, ReadyRooms and Cruiseco, while in the retail space, the team will also be supporting the preferred partner relationships within the Helloworld networks.

“We’ve built a strong team with a diverse set of backgrounds from across the industry,” Brady said.

“We’re all excited to be heading in store to be supporting agents in this next phase of growth in the travel industry,” he added.

He said roles were still available in Sydney and Melbourne, with applications being accepted at

In further recruitment news, Helloworld also recently revealed that Alexandra Pisker has been named as the new GM of Helloworld Travel’s Air Tickets in Australia.

Pisker’s career has included over a decade as Airline Product Manager at APT as well as three years at Qatar Airways.
