Leanne Edwards moves from NJT to Classic Collection

Classic Collection Holidays has appointed Leanne Edwards as head of sales north, representing the company’s luxury brand, Classic Collection, and trade-only Classic Package Holidays.

She joins from Not Just Travel, having previously held business development management roles at the homeworking agency. Before that, she worked for Hays Travel Independence Group.   

As part of a restructure of the team, Jorge Quibell is promoted to head of sales south. Quibell was previously the operator’s strategic accounts manager.

Si Morris-Green, agency sales and marketing director, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Leanne as the newest recruit to the Classic agency sales team. 

“Her career in retail travel started with Lunn Poly in 1994 so she brings a huge amount of knowledge, experience and talent to the role.”

Edwards will lead Classic’s regional sales managers for the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

She said: “I’ve long been an admirer of the Classic brand. They have a fantastic reputation for being very agent-friendly and easy to work with.

“I’m looking forward to building on strong agent relationships and helping to grow the business.”
