TRAFALGAR has confirmed the departure of its long-standing sales chief Rachael Harding who is leaving to pursue a new role.
The high-profile executive has resigned as director of sales after eight years at Trafalgar and 15 years at The Travel Corporation, prompting a recruitment drive to appoint a new sales head (TD Fri).
The company said Harding had been a key contributor to Trafalgar’s growth and numerous industry awards, as well to its record year in 2017 and continuing growth in 2018.
“Rachael has been an integral part of Trafalgar’s success and an outstanding leader to our passionate team,” said Trafalgar md Matthew Cameron-Smith.
“She leaves a strong legacy in our business,” he added.
Harding first joined the Travel Corporation as director of sales & marketing for Contiki Holidays UK & Europe, before progressing to the Trafalgar role in 2010.
She has not yet revealed details of her next endeavour, but confirmed she would be taking up “an exciting role within the industry” in late Aug.
“I have loved being a part of such an inspiring brand,” Harding said of her time at Trafalgar.
“To be market leaders requires constant evolution and being part of the dedicated team that has driven this success has been an absolute career highlight.”
In addition to seeking a new sales head, Trafalgar will next month welcome a new marketing head in Cassie Zuill (TD Fri).
