The Co-operative Travel Personal Travel Advisors (CoPTA) has appointed a new person to head the group from August.
Tracie Burton will take over from Shirley Bell, who was drafted in as interim head of the home-working division when it merged with Thomas Cook last autumn.
Bell is due to resume her previous role as operations manager within CoPTA from the end of this month.
Burton has held a number of
travel jobs within The Co-operative Travel group over the past three years, which include positions with Cumbria Cruises and Escape as well as Freedom Travel Group.
She said: "In my view CoPTA is the UK's premium home-working travel company and operates a network of experienced, driven and highly knowledgeable travel professionals.
"I will be focused on driving the business forward and making use of the new opportunities, technology and market leading commercial terms available to us as part of the Thomas Cook Co-operative Travel joint venture."
Thomas Cook Co-operative Travel director of special businesses Trevor Davis added: "We have taken our time to ensure we secured the correct person for this position and I'm certain Tracie's outstanding leadership and knowledge of the sector will place CoPTA in excellent stead going forward."
