Carl Cross appointed as Managing Director of On The Go Tours
On The Go Tours is proud to announce the appointment of Carl Cross to the new role as Managing Director of their global operations.
Cross landed his first job within the industry as a Travel Advisor at STA Travel in Australia. Drawn in by a love for adventure and intrigued by the ever-changing nature of the industry, Cross quickly made a name for himself within the travel trade.
From a Youth Adventure Contractor at Flight Centre Australia and Brand Leader at Student Flights, to his latest position as General Manager of Retail Product, Marketing and Consumer Experience at Flight Centre UK – Cross brings almost 20 years of knowledge and experience to his new role at On The Go Tours.
As Managing Director, Cross will be responsible for all aspects of On The Go Tour’s business going forward – from sales and reservations, to marketing and operations – and will be splitting his time between their offices in Australia and the UK, as well as in their territories in Canada, South Africa and New Zealand.
Scott Braidwood, Co-Founder and Owner of On The Go Tours, said: “Carl brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to our team and will be a great asset to On The Go Tours. After many years with Flight Centre both in Australia and the UK he has a deep understanding of our business and we are all looking forward to reaching new heights under his leadership.”
Carl Cross, new Managing Director of On The Go Tours, said: “I’m so excited to be joining this very successful family-run business. I have worked with On The Go Tours in various capacities throughout my Flight Centre career and have always admired their entrepreneurial culture and relentless focus on the customer experience. In that time I have watched them grow from a small London-based Middle East tour operator to a larger global enterprise with teams around the world selling life changing experiences to tens of thousands of customers to over 50 countries and growing.”
