From the beginning of October, Switzerland’s largest tour operator will have a new director in London and in business and corporate development at headquarters in Zurich. Nick Robb is set to continue recovering after the pandemic.
“With Nick Robb, a very experienced manager takes charge of London’s position as general manager,” says a statement from the Swiss Travel Centre.
From London, the Swiss Travel Center deals with the main client markets of Great Britain, Ireland, Australia and Scandinavia. The focus is on selling attractive Switzerland holidays such as round trips with panoramic trains, winter experiences and summer holidays in Swiss Alpine destinations.
Recently he held the position of Sales and Account Manager
With his many years of experience in various disciplines of tourism, Rob will continue to lead the rebuilding of the site after the years of the pandemic. The Briton was recently appointed as Director of Sales and Accounts at the Swiss Travel Center in London and has a degree in General Management from Cranfield School of Management.
As Head of Corporate Development at Headquarters in Zurich, Clemens Bartholomew will be responsible for critical corporate projects in the areas of digitization, sustainability, innovation and regulation. The former General Manager in London decided to leave the UK after three years for family reasons.
Before that on the Graubünden holiday
“Thanks to the well-placed people of Graubünden, the London location has been able to return to its former glory in the current financial year, despite two very difficult years of the pandemic,” the statement continues. Prior to joining the Swiss Travel Centre, the Business Administration graduate was a member of the Board of Directors of Graubünden Ferien, founder and CEO of a marketing agency in Zurich and worked as a consultant in Switzerland and abroad.
With Melanie Gubser, the dedicated and highly experienced tourism expert returns to the Swiss Travel Center as Business Development Project Manager. She finds her new focus in the areas of Marketing with Partners and Delegations, where she will expand existing business areas and start new ones.
The HF Graduate Tourism Specialist worked at the Swiss Travel Center from 2015 to 2020 in the areas of Sales, Operations, Business Development and Product Management. She was then able to gain professional experience at Schmid Pelli & Partner as a Project Manager in Projects and Consulting. In March of this year, she took over the management of RigiPlus AG and resigned at her request at the end of June. She will complete her Executive MBA studies at the end of October. (htr/u)
