Explore has appointed a new business development manager to support its growth among the UK travel trade.
Nick Hindle joins the adventure specialist from Wendy Wu Tours, where he worked as sales and business development manager for two years.
Hindle will look after agents based in the east of England. His appointment follows that of Philippa Baines in May, who also joined Explore’s trade sales team as a BDM.
Prior to his role with Wendy Wu, Hindle spent four years working as a senior retail manager for Tui.
Ben Ittensohn, Explore global head of sales, said: “The enhanced team aims to give every agent even more chance to build their small group adventure business with Explore.
“Our trade partners are an essential part of Explore’s ongoing success and we are encouraged by the strong double-digit growth year to date in our agency sales.
"[We] are committed to making sure they have every opportunity to continue to grow with us and receive the dedicated support and assets they need.”
