Stephen Gerrard is the most recent new addition in the team as commercial manager while Matt Parr started as leisure sales manager and Philip Ariss joined as corporate sales manager earlier this month. The team also includes online sales manager Kerry Farmer; head of UK marketing and communications Jon Danks and business development manager Liam Quinn.
“After 18 months, I’m incredibly excited and proud to introduce the new team that we’ve assembled. They consist of highly experienced individuals who are experts in the aviation industry. Our goal is to be the best aviation commercial team in the UK, bar none,” said Gary Kershaw, UK & Ireland general manager at SAA.
The team was joined by Charley Boorman at an event last night to introduce the team.
SAA also announced it has formed a new strategic partnership with the African Travel & Tourism Association (ATTA) and will act as the association’s lead sponsor for 2013/14. The two will work together to promote tourism into Africa.
