Cookson Adventures has announced the appointment of Nick Davies as director of projects and sales.
With over a decade of experience across sales and operations in the luxury travel sector, Davies joins Cookson Adventures to help cement the company’s position at the forefront of the adventure travel market.
He will be in charge of overseeing a team of experienced and creative project managers driving the international growth of the company and helping to attract new suppliers with a wealth of new and exciting product offerings.
The hire follows the company’s impressive growth figures of a 33 per cent increase on 2017, with Davies tasked with continuing to drive this momentum.
In his previous role as travel director at Air Charter Service, Davies oversaw a team of travel consultants, tasked with organising the personal travel arrangements and concierge services for the company’s private jet clients.
Davies commented: “The reputation of Cookson Adventures is unrivalled across the luxury travel industry, and I am looking forward to the challenge of promoting the company’s incredibly high standards.
“These are standards that have been developed over a decade of being at the forefront of the market and ones that need to be upheld to retain this position.
“We are therefore not resting on our laurels; we will continue to expand our network of international suppliers and experts, so we can continue to build trips that push the boundaries of travel for our global clientele.
“Clients come to Cookson Adventures expecting journeys that mix elegance, innovation and an unprecedented level of personalisation and it is my job to make sure that is delivered.”
Founded in 2009 by avid adventurer and world record holder Henry Cookson, Cookson Adventures has built a reputation for creating ‘world first’ travel experiences for clientele looking to explore untapped, remote corners of the world, while enjoying the highest level of elegance.
Adam Sebba, chief executive of Cookson Adventures, added: “In light of impressive growth figures for Cookson Adventures this year, it is timely to introduce someone of Nick’s pedigree to the business, given his successes across the travel sector.
“A decade on from Henry Cookson founding the business, our vision remains the same; to provide unique and elegant adventures to the curious and the daring.
“Nick’s knowledge of the industry and his fresh take on the ideas that we have will be integral to us in building on this vision, driving our expansion plans both in the UK market and internationally, where we have great aspirations.”
