Jayne Kerr joins Greatdays Travel Group
Jayne Kerr, formerly Sales Director with The Travel Adventure (now renamed COGO Travel), has returned to the industry, joining Greatdays Travel Group as one of its sales managers responsible for managing private groups.
Jayne, who established Brighton-based The Travel Adventure in 1993 with husband Ian, retired in 2016 to spend time with family and travelling. However, a conversation with long-time friend, Paul Beaumont, Executive director with Greatdays, has seen her return in a sales role.
In her new role, she will be supporting Greatdays as part of an expanded sales team in developing new relationships with selected group travel organisers.
Commenting on the move, Greatdays executive director Paul Beaumont, says: “Over the last ten years we’ve been steadily growing the number of group travel organiser clients. Jayne’s experience and enthusiasm for group travel, combined with her knowledge of the GTO sector will help us to increase this important element of the business.”
Jayne says: “When I retired I spent many wonderful days travelling and meeting friends. Then last year I met up with Paul Beaumont at a trade show. I’ve known Paul for many years and, much like my old company, I do like working in a family-run business. I simply couldn’t work in a large corporate company where GTOs are just numbers. The opportunity to work with Paul was simply too good an opportunity to pass by. When I retired I had built up a huge following of group travel organisers. In this new role I’m looking forward to renewing relationships with many of them.”
