Coral Expeditions has outgrown its former Cairns head office as it enters a significant growth phase. Australia’s pioneering small ship cruising company has this year completed its inaugural season of Tasmania expedition cruises and is now preparing to launch its first Asia itineraries in November 2016. It continues to operate three- to seven-day cruises year around on the Great Barrier Reef and seasonally in the Kimberley, Cape York, Arnhem Land, Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific.
“It’s an exciting time for Coral Expeditions and to support our expansion we’ve created two new roles,” said Mark Fifield, Group General Manager, Coral Expeditions.
Elizabeth Webb has been appointed as Sales Distribution Manager.
Elizabeth will be known to many in the industry from her 14 years on the sales and marketing team at RTO Tourism Tropical North Queensland. At Coral Expeditions she is responsible for travel agent liaison, setting contracts with trade partners and coordinating advertising opportunities.
“Over the years I’ve seen how Coral has been growing and this is a great opportunity for me to have a new challenge, be part of a growing company and I’ve always had a passion for the water and boats and travel,” said Elizabeth.
Jasmin Budden joins Coral Expeditions to take up the new position of Branding and Communications Specialist, bringing skills developed in international marketing and promotion for Boost Juice Bars. She supports Sales and Marketing Executive Tiffany Marcantelli to produce marketing materials, manage the company’s newly revamped website and social media channels.
Elizabeth and Jasmin are based at the new head office at 246 Hartley Street, Cairns. All contact phone numbers remain unchanged free call 1800 079 545 or 07 4040 9999 and fax 07 4035 5995.
