Sunshine.co.uk Appoints New Managing And Financial Directors
The UK's leading online independent travel agency has announced that it has appointed a new Financial and Managing Director.
Sunshine.co.uk has today announced that it has appointed Chris Clarkson, former Marketing Director, as the company's new Managing Director, along with Zoe Robson who has also been appointed as the company's new Financial Director. The appointments are with immediate effect and follow former MD, Chris Brown stepping down to concentrate on new projects and spend more time with his family.
New Managing Director Chris Clarkson has a wealth of experience in the online travel sector and is widely respected for the ways in which he has deployed his considerable technology and affiliate marketing knowledge across the travel sector. Chris Clarkson has implemented and managed many of the company's award winning business projects and is well known for successfully looking at ways to disrupt the travel industry's out-dated and high-cost routes to market whilst consistently delivering superior levels of service to consumers.
A professionally trained and qualified accountant, Zoe Robson joined the Ernst & Young trainee apprenticeship scheme, after completing her A-Levels, where she went on to work for 8 years before joining a Hays Travel subsidiary as a company accountant progressing through the business as it grew, to the position of IG Financial Controller.
Zoe has been heavily involved in managing the financial risk of the IG members, understanding their businesses and advising them on controlling costs before becoming Financial Director at sunshine.co.uk.
Alan Gilmour, one of the founders of sunshine.co.uk, said,
The new appointments signify an important time in our growth; with record numbers of bookings and more and more consumers seeing us as the first port of call for cheap holidays, it is important that we grow the company in a sensible yet dynamic way. I am very much looking forward to working with Zoe and I am sure that she will make sure we carry on hitting our goals whilst also delivering best-in-industry levels of customer service.
www.sunshine.co.uk was founded in 2007 by Chris Clarkson, Chris Brown and Alan Gilmour and, after more than 4 years with the travel agency, Chris Brown has decided to leave to focus on new projects.
Sunshine.co.uk provides holidays to a range of destinations worldwide and is now a successful and established company, moving on to face new challenges within the industry.
