Air New Zealand has appointed two new East Coast based sales managers to the airline’s expanding North American staff.
Erika Brum has been named Corporate Sales Account Manager for the Eastern United States, while Caroline Alberts joins the company as a Leisure Sales Account Manager in the East.
Based out of the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area, Ms Brum brings with her 12 years of airline industry experience, including roles in similar capacities at both Japan Airlines and TAM Airlines. She is a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Ms Alberts is based out of Boston, MA and joins current Account Manager Hank Marques in the Eastern region. A graduate of Boston University, she previously spent three years in sales and marketing with JetBlue and then moved on to Icelandair handling trade sales in the Southern United States.
Air New Zealand General Manager of the Americas, UK and Europe Chris Myers says the airline’s continued North American growth necessitates further investment in people.
“The additions of Erika and Caroline to our North American sales team bolsters our ability to extend reach and provide more personal attention to both prospective and valued existing corporate and leisure accounts.”
