Board of Directors

Barbara Kolosinska, Business Development Director,
C&M Travel Recruitment

Barbara has had a career in travel spanning over 15 years. Prior to working in the industry, she travelled and worked extensively throughout Africa, Asia, Australia, South and Central America, and it was this that spurred her into working in the industry she is very passionate about. After studying a travel and tourism degree, Barbara worked for Air Jet, selling the French airline to Travel Management Companies. She then joined Holiday Autos in another account management role, where she continued to make a large number of travel industry contacts. Barbara moved to C&M Travel Recruitment in 1999 - their second year of trading. At C&M she has worked her way through the ranks, from Recruitment Consultant to Sales Manager and in 2008, Business Development Director, sitting on the Board. Barbara has been instrumental in taking C&M from strength to strength, helping the company become the success it is today. She has a real passion for the travel industry and the people in it as well as being a huge supporter of the ITT. As a Board Director, Barbara wants to help secure ITT's future working closely with the other Board Directors and all the Members.
