PETER Douglas has joined Helloworld Travel Limited as its new National Sales Manager – Wholesale, with the announcement made earlier this week in an internal update to the company’s employees.
He takes over from Steve Brady, who moved into the role of Group General Manager of Cruise last month in light of Karen Deveson’s departure.
Douglas officially joined the Helloworld team today, and will be based in the company’s Sydney offices, where he will spearhead the division’s continued growth.
The role will see him draw on several decades of experience, including nine years as Head of Sale at Globus family of brands – a position which he unexpectedly left in May, after the company underwent a series of staffing changes as part of a major restructure.
Additionally, Douglas was also a Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO) Board member for two years, and has worked in senior sales roles across a variety of travel companies, including Excite Holidays and Creative Holidays.
