The Travel Corporation has revamped its American sales teams for its premium and luxury brands and established a new entity called The Velvet Collection.
It incorporates Red Carnation Hotel Collection, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and African Travel.
The unified Velvet Collection sales team now offers a single comprehensive resource of cross-trained TTC professionals in premium brands to assist the travel agent community.
“As an organization, we continually evaluate our business processes to ensure that we are delivering the best solutions and assistance to our partners and guests. TTC is driven by service and that’s exactly the point of our new Velvet Collection sales team,” said TTC spokesperson, Ellen Bettridge, Global CEO of Uniworld.
It will offer real-time solutions to client travel issues across travel products, experiences and destinations.
“It’s about relationship building and delivering outstanding service across the travel spectrum from river cruising and guided vacations to luxury hotels stays and custom safari experiences,” Bettridge added.
The new sales organization will be split geographically into east coast and west coast.
It will fall under the oversight of TTC brand heads Ellen Bettridge of Uniworld, Jonathan Raggett, Global CEO of Red Carnation Hotel Collection, Jon Grutnzer, President of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, and Sherwin Banda, President of African Travel.
