Club La Costa Resorts & Hotels (CLC) has recently announced a number of key appointments at the company: Leslie McCann has joined as Marketing Director, while Richard Carrick has been appointed as a consultant and Martin Andrew as new Commercial and Distribution Director.
Leslie McCann has more than 30 years’ experience in the timeshare industry, and was Group Marketing Director for LSI and Seasons Holidays plc before joining CLC. Most recently, he acted in a consultant role to the Royal Karma Group. He will be responsible for introducing and developing new marketing and sales programmes and will operate out of the company’s London offices.
Richard Carrick, a high profile figure in the travel industry, has been advising Club La Costa in a non-executive capacity since the end of 2010, and was instrumental in bringing former Airtours and Going Places colleague, Martin Andrew, on board. Their appointment signals a strategic shift by the company to increase its rental business.
Carrick says: “Significant success has already been achieved in developing trade partnerships to sell Club La Costa’s inventory to holidaymakers and it will be Martin’s role to drive this still further, particularly with new CLC resorts opening in Orlando this year and Turkey next.”
