Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced Laura Ryan as its new regional sales executive, south.
Ryan will work with Regent’s southern agent partners - including national agencies, online travel agents, retail stores and homeworkers with the aim of helping them to grow and maximise their luxury cruise business.
With seven years’ experience working for Thomas Cook in a range of retail positions including sales consultant, customer service manager and branch manager, Ryan has a deep understanding of the needs and challenges that travel agents face daily.
Ryan also has two years’ experience as a senior account manager in the business sector and has most recently completed a part-time degree in business management, sales and marketing.
“We are thrilled to welcome Laura to the team, her travel knowledge combined with account management experience means I have no doubt she will be a valuable asset to the Regent sales team,” said Paul Beale, head of UK sales for Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
“The travel trade is incredibly important to us and getting the right people on board to nurture those relationships and increase business is of paramount importance to our mutual success.”
Ryan said “I’m excited to be back in travel once again, especially for a market-leading company such as Regent.”
Ryan continued “Since starting I have been relishing the opportunities and responsibilities that come with the role. I look forward to developing luxury cruise opportunities for my accounts and contributing to achieving sales targets with my new team.”
