ATPI strengthens sales team with new senior leadership roles
Published:September 8, 2022
To keep up with the continued growth in the Group Sales arena, ATPI has further expanded its UK team with the formation of three new roles reporting to Katie Skitterall, group commercial director.
Following on from the appointment of Jamie Blackall as head of global bid management, a further three new roles have been appointed to bring in senior leaders from across the business lines. Tristan Hindley joins as director of global sales; David Hutton as head of sales: marine and energy (based in Aberdeen), and Nick Lamb completes the trio of new starters as commercial head of sports. In addition, Deepa Dorai has moved from CWT and joins ATPI as global customer success director.
Katie Skitterall comments: “ATPI has seen significant growth across all business lines in the last 12 months and in order for us to keep up with the increased activity, it was time to expand our senior team. Each new role will focus on a business line, lead the strategy and drive the growth even further for 2023 and beyond.
“We are thrilled with our new team recruits and can’t wait to see the impact that they make at ATPI.”
James Draper, ATPI head of UK sales, added: “The level of activity we are seeing across the business areas is unreal. In this post-COVD world, and with more budget constraints being placed on corporate travel teams, I think a stable TMC is vital to any organisation. ATPI is known for flexible travel solutions and exceptional customer service which continues to prove a hit with current, and new, clients.”
The team has also seen further restructuring, with Nikki Regan promoted from head of commercial strategy (UK) to director of commercial strategy (global).
