“I have worked alongside Liz for more than two years. She demonstrates tireless enthusiasm, commitment to meeting the needs of the market and the ability to understand the challenges and opportunities facing travel sellers.

I’m confident that Liz and the rest of the UK team will continue to build on the success of local partnerships, working together to shape the future of travel in new and exciting ways.”
