Barrhead Travel announces management promotion
Barrhead Travel has announced its latest addition to the senior management team. An internal promotion will see Caroline Donaldson, formerly head of commercial, take up the position of product and commercial director.
The newly-created role follows the recent restructure of the senior management team in which Jacqueline Dobson took the reigns as president in January. Under her remit, Ms Donaldson will oversee commercial agreements, product development and business development for all areas of the business, including cruise.
Ms Donaldson, who has been with the company for over 16 years, started with the business as a part-time long haul consultant before quickly progressing to manage the department. In 2007, she was appointed as business development manager after striking up supplier relationships as the business growth began to accelerate.
She commented: “I am looking forward to the next chapter that this role will bring, including working alongside our cruise partners. The creation of the position is a reflection of our strength within the UK market as we continue to expand and acknowledges the developments we have made in terms of product enhancements and commercial negotiations.”
Ms Dobson said: “This promotion is testament to Caroline’s unwavering commitment, passion for the company and flair for relationships which has ultimately driven the business development division forward over the years.”
