The first appointment made in the UK since the Line entered the UK market, Stephens will be responsible for helping to support and develop the operator’s sales and distribution network of tour operators and agents in the UK. With new owners, a new ship under construction and further fleet expansion plans, this appointment forms part of A-ROSA’s ongoing growth strategy.
Working with and supporting Lucia Rowe, head of A-ROSA UK & Ireland, Olivia will be responsible for liaising with both tour operator partners and travel agents on regular basis, hosting training sessions, attending trade shows and much more. Overall, the aim is to grow the visibility of A-ROSA and its products to help increase sales in all market segments.
Lucia Rowe, head of A-ROSA UK and Ireland comments: “This appointment is so important for us going forward and the first time appointment I have made since we began selling in the UK in 2014. It will enable us to provide greater contact with our travel trade partners and provide me with the support I need on a day-to-day basis to drive growth going forward. It will free up more of my time to focus on the strategic developments and business opportunities. This is only the beginning of A-ROSA’s expansion plans in the UK market.”
Stephens is a business and tourism graduate from Plymouth University and was recruited via the ITT student ambassador programme. She is about to complete a Masters degree in sustainable environmental management.
Rowe adds: “We are all aware of the importance of sustainability in tourism and alongside Olivia’s drive and ambition, her environmental knowledge and understanding was really appealing.”
