Marchiori joins travel team
Colpitts adds to Edinburgh sales team
Corporate travel specialist, Colpitts World Travel, has appointed Anita Marchiori to head up its sales operations across the UK. A native of Australia, she will be based in the company’s European HQ in Edinburgh.
Prior to her move to Scotland, Ms Marchiori spent three years in London managing business travel for Flight Centre, a firm she initially joined in Melbourne in 2011.
Her appointment marks further investment into Colpitts from its US parent Direct Travel, which acquired the business last year.
In her new role, Ms Marchiori takes on responsibility for all aspects of corporate travel sales in Scotland and the rest of the UK and will also help in developing the Direct Travel brand across Europe.
Ian Scholes, Colpitts director of European Operations, 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.”
