Colpitts World Travel has appointed Anita Marchiori to lead its sales operations across the UK.
Marchiori, who will be based in the TMC’s European headquarters in Edinburgh, previously spent three years in London managing business travel for Flight Centre.
The appointment marks further investment into Colpitts from its US parent Direct Travel, which acquired the TMC last year.
In her new role, Marchiori takes on responsibility for all aspects of corporate travel sales in Scotland and the rest of the UK and will also help to develop the Direct Travel brand across Europe.
Ian Scholes, director of European operations at Colpitts, said: “Anita is an internationally-focused and experienced travel sector professional who has great potential to help us grow our client base across the UK and beyond. We are delighted to have her on board as we further expand our team in Edinburgh.
“While we continue to operate in a challenging economic environment, her appointment further demonstrates the commitment of our parent company Direct Travel to invest in our on-going development in the UK and Europe.”
