Meet our new Business Development Manager!

Nikki Alves has been appointed to the role of Business Development Manager, Victoria / Tasmania based at our Head Office in Moonee Ponds.  Nikki replaces Daniel Turner who resigned in May.

Nikki is an experienced member of the GPT team and currently holds the position of Reservations Manager. This internal operations experience will be a great asset when liaising with our valued retail travel agent partners.

Born in Wellington, Nikki has an overwhelming passion for selling New Zealand. Her travel background includes a long tenure at Kirra Holidays in both reservations and sales, hence her product knowledge on what New Zealand has to offer and the benefits of coach touring is extensive.
