Bourne Leisure, who operates Haven and British Holidays, Warner Breaks and Butlins, has recently expanded its Agency Sales team with the appointment of two new Sales Executives. These appointments highlight Bourne Leisure’s ongoing commitment to the trade, with the aim of increasing face to face contact and giving maximum support to travel agents across the UK.

Gary Turgoose has joined the Bourne Leisure Agency Sales team to provide agents with product knowledge and training throughout the South of England whilst Victoria Culling looks after the North, including Scotland.


Gary joins the team with existing product knowledge gained from two years working with the Butlins brand, following a two year stint as a Thomson rep in resort. Victoria’s previous roles as a Field Executive for and as a Regional Sales Manager for Transun have provided her with a wealth of sales experience for her new position within the Bourne Leisure team.



Gary and Victoria will report to Liza Williams, who has recently been promoted to Bourne Leisure’s National Account Manager, following a restructure of the on the road sales team.


Liza Williams, National Account Manager comments: “We are extremely pleased to have Gary and Victoria joining the Bourne Leisure team and with their knowledge of both sales and the travel trade we are confident that they will make a valuable addition to the Agency Sales team. 


“With the domestic tourism market having experienced very strong sales in 2006 and predictions for next year also looking positive, agents are increasingly realising the earning potential of booking UK breaks for their customers. With this in mind we felt that an expansion of our Agency Sales team was essential to meet this demand and maintain regular contact and excellent relationships with the trade. ”
