Agents will now find it even easier to enter the luxury cruise market with extra support from Silversea Cruises expert, dedicated Sales Team across Australia and New Zealand.
Chosen for their vast experience in high-end travel, the team reinforces Silversea’s ongoing commitment to ensuring that all agents seeking knowledge on luxury travel and Silversea’s unique offering have sufficient support.
Karen Christensen, Silversea’s General Manager & Director Sales/Marketing, Australasia, says:
“There is enormous potential for growth in the luxury end of the cruise market, which is particularly exciting for agents. We work hard to ensure that all consultants across Australia and New Zealand have access to the information they need to confidently sell Silversea’s luxury products. The members of our Sales Team have been handpicked for their strong experience in the luxury sector. As a result, our team is well-placed to share their expert knowledge on our fleet, our high level of service and exceptional itineraries.”
Silversea’s Sales Team, led by Cathy Tees, Head of Field Sales & National Accounts Manager – consists of four Business Development Managers (BDMs):
· Leanne Fonagy, Northern New South Wales and Queensland
· Scott Graham, Southern New South Wales, ACT and New Zealand
· Craig Farrell, Victoria and Tasmania
· Charlie Turnbull, Western Australia and South Australia
“We’re very fortunate that the Asia Pacific region is a major focus for Silversea. In 2015, the company launched Silver Discoverer which spends a large percentage of its time in Australia and New Zealand, with the Kimberley region being a key highlight. As a result, we find that approximately 50% of our sales for Silver Discoverer come from the Australasian market, which represents lots of opportunities for agents. Silversea will continue to support agents and provide trade, irrespective of size, with all the tools needed to grow business.”
