Virgin takes on C&I desk staff for UK business

Virgin Atlantic has hired two national account managers to concentrate on the UK C&I market. Claire Liggins moves from her position as account manager, specialist sales at Delta Air Lines, while Chris Price has been with Virgin for three years, most recently as national account manager for leisure sales. “There hasn’t been a national account manager on C&I sales since November last year,” said Liggins. “C&I has always been key, but since then enquiries have been handled by the group sales department. However, we are more focused now and both Chris and I are looking to build up the C&I side of the business.” Liggins and Price will both report to Phil Squires, manager of specialist sales.
