Uniworld and U River Cruises have appointed former Scenic & Emerald Waterways national sales manager Dawn Quinn as a key account manager in the UK.
Quinn, who will join a trade team of five on Monday (September 16) and will report to national sales manager Rachel Healey, will be responsible for the management of Uniworld and U’s trade partners, and building relationships with new accounts.
Quinn’s appointment follows the departure of James Howlett, who has moved into a sales position with escorted tour operator Collette.
Chris Townson, managing director of Uniworld, said: “We’re thrilled to bring Dawn onboard, and I’m looking forward to her working closely with our dedicated Uniworld and U account managers to grow our partner relationships even further.
“I worked with Dawn at Scenic where she successfully managed the top accounts and secured a number of new relationships. I’ve already spoken to many of our key trade partners, and they are delighted to hear Dawn is now working for Uniworld.”
Quinn added: “I’m really looking forward to supporting Chris, Rachel and the rest of the team, and introducing this award-winning brand to a new pool of agents in the UK.
“It’s a pleasure to be working on a brand that is widely recognised as the most luxurious river cruise line in the world, and an operator like U which is bringing cruising to a whole new generation of travellers.”
