Travelsphere and Just You have strengthened their trade sales team following a period of “unprecedented growth” in sales through trade channels.
The escorted touring specialists have set up a dedicated trade marketing division to allow them to work more closely with the trade than every before.
Emma Trainor joins as trade and partnerships marketing manager, while Laura Brown joins as trade marketing executive.
“Travelsphere and Just You are seeing such amazing growth through the trade we feel the time is right to have a dedicated marketing team to support both brands, our trade partners and the trade media,” said Sarah Weetman, head of trade sales.
“With our marketing team in place, we are able to respond efficiently to our trade partners and make it even easier for them to sell the right products to their customers.”
Darryl Gardner also joins the team as key account manager for the south, covering for Polly Poulton while she is on maternity leave.
“We are extremely lucky to have Darryl join us,” said Weetman. “He is incredibly popular with our trade partners and will be able to support all of our activities, including the popular Just You in-store events.
Meanwhile, Travelsphere and Just You have extended their trade incentive offer until the end of October.
