Global Travel Group’s outgoing commercial director Cherie Richards has thanked colleagues and members in a heartfelt farewell video marking “the end of an era”.
Speaking on Friday (29 May), her last day at the consortium after 15 years, Richards said she had enjoyed “the most amazing years with the group and I’m really sad to be leaving, in particular my amazing team and amazing members”.
"It’s tough and challenging times right now and I know it’s hard for everybody and leaving a job and starting a new adventure is also quite difficult in the current climate.”
Richards, whose departure from Global was announced yesterday (28 May), described, “gutting out” the office she had kept for 11 years.
Managing director Andy Stark said she was “moving on for both personal and professional reasons” and would be “pursuing a new opportunity”.
In an emotional end to the video, Richards added: “Global Travel Group will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve really enjoyed working for the group and I’m sad to be leaving. I wish you all the best and I hope to see you again really soon.”
