Sixty members of the Transat Tours Canada team have been let go in the most recent phase of restructuring, as the company continues efforts to improve efficiencies, confirmed spokesperson Debbie Cabana.
Firstly, with the integrations of TMR's sales team with Transat Holidays and Nolitours, Louise Fecteau, formerly responsible for sales and marketing at TMR, has been assigned the role of commercial director for Quebec. Nicole Bursey, most recently sales and commercial director for Ontario & Atlantic Canada, is now instead commercial director for Western Canada and Ontario. As a result of this reshuffling, Maryse Martel and Paula Rizos, commercial directors for Quebec and Western Canada respectively, have left the company.
Reporting to Bursey, Dan Prior, sales director, Transat Discoveries, will now assume the role of sales manager for Ontario & Atlantic Canada, representing the Transat Holidays, Nolitours, and Transat Discoveries brands.
Other appointments include that of Susie Devault to the role of vice-president, customer experience, and Chantal Chlala, to director of customer service.
In addition, changes have been made to TTC's post-reservations service, and as such, centralizing responsibilities in the Montreal office.
