Ivor Hughes has joined travel technology provider Dolphin Dynamics in the new position of sales manager.
He previously worked in various sales positions at Comtec, Traveltek and more recently SABS Travel Technologies, and joins with years of experience developing relationships with and selling reservations and mid/back office systems to travel agencies and TMCs in the UK and Ireland.
Hughes is the latest addition to Dolphin’s growing sales and marketing team, reflecting the company’s ambition to raise market awareness and grow market share over the coming years.
“I am looking forward to be working with Dolphin Dynamics, one of the leading independent travel technology companies in the UK. Having worked in the travel technology arena for over 20 years, I value good products, good service and working with a forward-looking organisation.
"At Dolphin, I will continue to work with some of the many dedicated and passionate people within the travel industry and I hope my insight and experience will add value to an exciting 2018 and beyond,” Hughes said.
Chuck Richardson, Dolphin Dynamics’ managing director, added: “We enjoyed tremendous success in attracting travel agents and tour operators to the Dolphin platform in 2017 that were looking to streamline their operations and increase sales.
"With the elimination of credit card fees alongside the introduction of GDPR, NDC and the Package Travel Directive all coinciding to challenge travel agents and operators in 2018, there has never been a greater need for these companies to invest in the type of technology we offer.
"Our job is to communicate this message to the market and demonstrate how we can help.
With his deep understanding of the travel industry and extensive network of contacts, I am delighted Ivor has chosen to join Dolphin as he will undoubtedly help us make 2018 one of our best years yet.”
