Rail Plus is expanding its national sales team with the appointment of Richard McKisack to the newly-created position of Business Development Manager for New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Western Australia, responsible for providing Rail Plus’ travel agent partners with sales, marketing and training support.
In a travel industry career spanning almost 20 years, McKisack has held senior sales and marketing roles for a range of leading travel companies, including Nexus Holidays, Innstant Travel and KEA Campers Australia & NZ.
Rail Plus Commercial Director Ingrid Kocijan says the creation of the new role is part of a broader restructure of the company’s national sales team, which now includes Nicki Schleibs (BDM Victoria/Tasmania/South Australia), Larry Burrows (BDM Queensland/Northern NSW/Northern Territory) and James Hooper (Key Account Manager).
“The recent integration of Rail Plus into Rail Europe’s global network provided an opportunity to review the way we engage with our travel agent partners,” says Kocijan.
“The result is a new structure that allows the Rail Plus sales team to interact more closely with frontline agents across Australia, and more effectively support the company’s current growth trajectory.”
