INTREPID Travel has announced the appointment of Sarah Clark as MD for Australia and New Zealand, while Yvette Thompson has been named as GM of Sales and Partnerships.
Clark returns to the central role after a secondment leading Intrepid’s accommodation strategy (TD 25 Oct 2021).
Thompson’s promotion will see her lead all of Intrepid’s partner relationships and commercial agreements, replacing Cameron Elliott who will now head up global sales for Intrepid’s network of 25 destination management companies across the globe.
The pair will work alongside GM of Marketing ANZ Louise Laing, GM of Inside Sales and Customer Experience ANZ Julie Risteveski, and ANZ GM of Commercial Finance, Lauren McCormick, creating the operator’s first all-female regional leadership team.
Clark and Thompson were among several Intrepid leaders at ATE in Sydney yesterday – see p7.
