Newmarket Holidays has bolstered its product team with two new appointments.
Verity Rice, previously with First Choice Holidays, Tui and Travelopia, where she held senior positions for nine years, becomes head of product planning and strategy.
Michael Fleetwood joins as head of product, Europe, UK and Ireland from luxury travel firm SevenTravel where he worked as head of product. He has held previous roles at Saga, Abercrombie & Kent, Cox and Kings, Intourist and Cosmos.
The appointments follow “encouraging results” for the escorted tour operator post-pandemic.
Product director Richard Harrington said: “It’s great to be strengthening our product team now that operations are back on track post-pandemic.
“Both Verity and Mike are joining a great team that will further be strengthened by their experience and expertise.”
Rice said: “As travel is now back on track, I’m looking forward to bringing my knowledge, skill set and passion for tour operating to the fabulous team at Newmarket Holidays to help drive collaboration, efficiency and growth towards our strategic goals.”
Fleetwood added: “I’m delighted to have joined such a prestigious touring company. Newmarket Holidays’ range and breadth of product within the UK and Europe is exciting and I look forward to adding to this over the next few months with the great team.”
