New account manager for Scotland and Ireland.

Leanne Kirkwood Holiday Extras, the UK market leader in travel add-ons, announced today that it has appointed Leanne Kirkwood as its new account manager for Scotland and Ireland. Leanne started in her new post on January 7, 2013.

Leanne joins Holiday Extras from JTA Travel Group, where she increased the sales in her region by over fifty per cent despite the challenging economic climate. Previously, Leanne worked with Direct Holidays in Glasgow as a reservations consultant.

“Finding the perfect candidate to drive Holiday Extras bookings in Scotland has been quite a challenge,” says James Lewis. “We feel that Leanne is the perfect fit for our team and for her role as a communicator and facilitator for our Scottish and Irish accounts.”

Leanne is looking forward to working with the Kent-based company: “I’m passionate about travel and am so excited to be working with Holiday Extras. I’m particularly looking forward to enjoying the combination of hard work and fun.”
