Eurostar boosts senior sales team

Eurostar has announced the appointment of Jason Geall as head of UK business sales and Michael Davies as head of international sales. Before joining Eurostar, Jason Geall spent six years at www.Jobsite.co.uk where he was national sales manager. Prior to this he spent five years in retail management with Sears and the Kingfisher Group. Geall will be responsible for all UK business ticket revenue, including the management of Eurostar's London-based business sales and account management teams. Michael Davies has been at Eurostar since its launch in 1994. His previous role was senior business account manager, where he was responsible for Eurostar's relationship with travel management companies. As head of international sales he is in charge of sales in all markets outside the UK, France and Belgium. Eurostar UK and international sales director Emma Harris said: “I am delighted that Jason has joined Eurostar and Michael has taken on a new role at such an important and exciting time in the development of the business. We are currently experiencing strong growth in both the UK business travel market and in the number of travellers from outside the UK, France and Belgium. In the first nine months of 2005 Eurostar carried 5.63 million passengers and saw a 15% rise in business travellers. Its share of the rail/air market on its main routes has risen to record levels: it now has 71% of the London-Paris market and 64% of the London-Brussels market.
