Parker Travel Collection’s Managing Director, Todd Parker announced the opening of its new office to service the leisure and business sectors of the United Kingdom and European travel trade and the appointment of Business Development Manager for the region, Leonie Groves.

As part of this restructure Maria Haglund will complete her tenure with Parker Travel Collection at the end of this month to continue running her own consultancy firm which had been contracted to PTC over the last three and a half years.
Ms Haglund played an integral role for Parker Travel Collection in servicing the European market during this time.
“Whilst we face interesting times in the European zone there is still opportunity to grow business especially around special events such as the Lions for example.
I recall promoting tourism in the United Kingdom 20 years ago in very difficult economic conditions and managed to generate good business with regular sales activity.
Having a presence in this market and a commitment to move with the times is crucial in sourcing new opportunities,” said Mr Parker.
The company will expand its office in China over the next 12 months and is intent on opening in India in the not too distant future, Parker Travel Collection currently has offices in Cairns, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Guangzhou, Los Angeles, London and Seoul.
