Gold Medal and Travel 2 strengthens team with four new appointments

Long-haul tour operators Gold Medal and Travel 2 have boosted their account and product teams with two promotions and two external hires.
Colin Currie, the former Key Account Manager for Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man, has been given the newly created role of senior key account manager. Colin, who has been with the company for eight years, now oversees a select portfolio of larger national accounts.


Koral Lipton, who has worked for the group across a variety of reservation, tours and cruise-related sales positions since joining in August 2008, takes over his previous account area. From her Glasgow base she will spend most of her week on the road, meeting agents as far north as John O’Groats and across to the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland.

The dedicated cruise team, meanwhile, has also received a boost with the recent recruitment of Nicola Payne. Having worked in the travel industry since 1999 and specialising in cruise product development for nearly six years, Nicola joins the team as Product & Commercial Manager – Cruise from Stewart Travel, part of the Minoan Group.

Finally, Tricia Birmingham joins the Gold Medal and Travel 2 product management team as the new Senior Product Manager covering the Middle East, Indian Ocean and Africa team. Birmingham joins the team from Shearing’s.  

Gordon McCreadie, director of sales and marketing Gold Medal and Travel 2 commented: “With such tremendous talent within our Travel 2 and Gold Medal family, we’re delighted to be able to continue to reinforce our sale division from within. Both brands are doing very well and I am confident that our team of Key Account Managers will continue to lead the way in providing the best face-to-face support for our agent partners as we nurture our trade relationships.”
