Former Abercrombie & Kent global chief tour operating officer Kerry Golds is to join luxury concierge company Ten Lifestyle Group as chief executive of its travel division.
In her previous role, Golds was responsible for Abercrombie & Kent’s tour operations for the UK, Europe, USA and Australia.
She left that position in May after a decade with the firm and previously held a range of senior roles in the premium travel sector.
Ten said her appointment aligned with its “data-led decision to invest into luxury travel as a valuable, core element in the group’s service offering, which spans travel, lifestyle, dining, entertainment and luxury retail”.
It added: “Ten delivers these services to its large and growing wealthy and affluent membership base in the UK and globally.”
Golds will start in her new role as chief executive of Ten Luxury Travel on January 15.
Alex Cheatle, chief executive of Ten Lifestyle Group, said: “Kerry brings a formidable leadership track record in managing the highest quality travel services in the world.
“Her experience in delivering solutions for high net worth consumers will complement Ten’s already outstanding offering and help drive growth and service quality.”
Golds added: “I am delighted to be joining Ten, the indisputable leader in the lifestyle and concierge field.
“The opportunity to expand Ten’s travel offering to their client base as they celebrate their 25 year anniversary is incredibly exciting. I relish the challenge ahead and look forward to helping Ten deliver truly exceptional experiences to their members.”
