On The Go Tours, an award-winning tour operator specialising in locally led group tours and tailor-made holidays, is pleased to announce Diane Bignell’s promotion to Global Head of Agency Sales.

Diane began working for On The Go Tours in 2007, where she assisted in training and developing the Australian sales team from just herself as the sole Australian rep to the current nine reps in Australia and New Zealand.

Based in Adelaide, Diane’s new role will be to develop, train and support the On The Go Tours’ sales teams around the world with offices in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, Ireland and South Africa.

“We’re thrilled to see Diane step up into this new role,” says Carl Cross, Managing Director of On The Go Tours. “Diane is an invaluable person within our company and her extensive experience will ensure the ongoing success of our global sales team and partners.”

While On The Go Tours’ head office is located in the UK, Diane’s presence in Australia will be important for the success of the Australian sales team. Australia has the highest percentage of agent business and 75% of the global sales team are based in Australia and New Zealand. Diane will also be responsible for seeking new contracts whilst maintaining current key partners.

Highlights of Diane’s career include successfully producing local, preferred agreements in South Australia which lead to becoming the most productive territory in 2013-14. Diane also has experience representing and growing the On The Go Tours business within South Australia, Northern Territory, Western Australia and Asia over her 10 years with the company. She also won ‘Best BDM of the Year’ for SANT as voted by consultants in a large retail chain.

Her favourite On The Go Tours destinations are Sri Lanka for its diversity including the amazing wildlife, and Jordanfor the scenery, friendly people and amazing food. The highlight of working for On The Go Tours is the ability to allow clients to immerse themselves in the destination and really experience the culture as well as the sights.
