THE ap­point­ment of for­mer G Ad­ven­tures sales chief In­grid Berthelsen (Ko­ci­jan) to the Evo­lu­tion Travel Col­lec­tive (TD 07 Jan) is the first step in ramp­ing up the group’s op­er­a­tions as it im­ple­ments its unique new rep­re­sen­ta­tion model in the Aus­tralian mar­ket.

Berthelsen, pic­tured with Evo­lu­tion founder Pete Raw­ley at Travel Daily’s world head­quar­ters in Syd­ney this week, con­firmed the group was cur­rently fi­nal­is­ing the re­cruit­ment of more team mem­bers in­clud­ing BDMs and a GM of Sales who will be in­stru­men­tal in pro­mot­ing the com­pany’s clients to the Aus­tralian travel trade.

The Evo­lu­tion port­fo­lio al­ready in­cludes Drago­man Over­land, Ex­o­dus, TrekAmer­ica and Grand Amer­i­can Ad­ven­tures (TD 29 Nov) with fur­ther an­nounce­ments ex­pected in the com­ing weeks.

Cur­rently fo­cus­ing on tour­ing prod­ucts, Raw­ley and Berthelsen hinted at other pos­si­ble av­enues for ex­pan­sion such as youth and ma­rine-fo­cused “col­lec­tives” - see evo­lu­tiontc.com.au.
