Colchester-based booking agency Inntel has remodelled its Supplier Management Team, renaming it the Supplier Partnership Team, in a move reflecting the company’s more collaborative approach to supplier relationships.
Sian Sayward, who has been with the company for 12 years, has been promoted to the role of leading the new team, as supplier partnership manager.
“We don’t just want good relationships with our suppliers, we want them to be the best in the business,” Sayward says. “That’s my personal goal, and I am delighted to have so many equally committed people on my team.”
Inntel’s suppliers include hotels, meetings and conference venues and air and rail travel companies. The agency says it is also forging new partnership arrangements with content distributors such as Travelfusion, a leading travel content aggregator.
Inntel has recruited three additional people to work in the Supplier Partnership Team alongside Sayward.
