JacTravel appoints Vuyo Mzozoyana to its Africa Sales Force
June 26, 2017
JacTravel has appointed Vuyo Mzozoyana as Business Development Manager for Africa, representing both the JacTravel and totalstay brands. Vuyo will be based in Johannesburg where he will be focussed on growing the existing client base as well as developing the business in other major African countries. Vuyo has a wealth of experience in the industry having previously held senior roles with brands including Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn.
Vuyo commented: “I’m really excited about this new role. Totalstay has been in the South African market for over 5 years now and has already established some very productive partnerships with some of the leading travel businesses in the region. I’m really looking forward to driving that forwards and helping the company achieve its ambitious growth plans both here in SA and across the Continent.”
Philippa Chesler, Regional Head of Sales, added “We’re thrilled that Vuyo has joined us. Over recent years we have made great progress in the South African market so it’s the logical next step now to increase our presence here as well as expanding our footprint further into Africa in key countries like Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, where we are confident that our well-proven hotel reservation solution can add real value to travel agencies and tour operators alike.”
Vuyo’s arrival comes one year on from the rebranding exercise that saw totalstay replace Exclusively Hotels as the retail travel agent division of parent company, JacTravel.
