Since the beginning of 2017 Advantage Travel Partnership, the UK’s largest independent travel agent consortium, has invested in operations, member engagement and expanded by becoming the majority shareholder in WIN. The continual adaption has led to successful Advantage product innovation and significant membership growth.
“To ensure the skill and talent we have in the business is deployed in the areas that will continue to drive beneficial products and services for our members, Advantage has restructured the senior team. The new appointments and promotion will enable us to deliver a more cohesive service, in particular for business travel members,” commented, Julia Lo-Bue Said, Managing Director of Advantage Travel Partnership.
Paula Lacey, Group Commercial & Membership Director
Paula’s new role will be responsible for membership, plus commercial and marketing to ensure that all areas of Advantage’s service delivery to members complement and are joined-up. Within Paula’s commercial remit she will oversee Focus, Air and third-party providers.
Neil Armorgie, CEO of WIN & Global Product Director for Advantage
Neil will continue steering WIN as CEO. In addition, he will now have direct responsibility for business development and sales for business travel members, hotel contracting and supplier relations, along with conference & events for Advantage. Neil will also join the Advantage Group board.
The WIN team will remain operating the global network and international business development, managed by John Hobbs Hurrell. The UK membership will be rebranded as Advantage Business Travel.
Paul Nunn, Operations Director
A newly created board position, Paul will be accountable for operations and IT, which showcases Advantage’s understanding of the importance of technology for Advantage Holidays and AMS.
