We are now strengthening our team further with very strong competences within trade and marketing: We have hired Jens Juliussen whom many people within the travel industry will know as former Head of Product Development at Thomas Cook Northern Europe. Jens will be joining Related as Travel Trade & Marketing Director.
Jens Juliussen comes with more than 25 years of experience within the Nordic travel industry and will play an important role in developing and strengthening Related’s competences within trade and marketing – working closely together with the rest of the team.
– Jens will contribute to developing our competences within trade, including product development and relationships with airlines and tour operators. Jens will also play an important role in taking our clients’ marketing activities, campaigns, and efforts to the next level, while also being responsible for developing new formats and procedures within these areas. I am very proud and honored that a strong profile such as Jens has shown interest in becoming part of Related, and I look very much forward to getting him onboard, says Henrik Koch, CEO and owner of Related.
A strong brand and a healthy company culture
Jens Juliussen comes with extensive knowledge about the Nordic travel industry. He started working in Spies in 1985, first as Area Manager and later as Product Manager. Afterwards, he worked 15 years as Contracts- Resort- and Service Manager at Scandinavian Leisure Group in Stockholm.
Today, many will primarily know him for his role within Thomas Cook Northern Europe, where he was Production Manager for the group’s charter products as well as Head of Product Development for Dynamic Packaging.
– Besides having a strong brand and a healthy company philosophy and culture, I consider Related to have exactly the qualities I believe is needed to shape the future and seize the opportunities arising in the wake of the past year’s meltdown of the global travel industry. Therefore, I am looking much forward to becoming a part of Related’s team and thereby taking part in shaping the company’s future journey. It feels like the next natural step for me to take a seat “on the other side of the table” and help realizing the great potential that lies in developing the business, establishing new partnerships and strengthening the marketing efforts, in order to reach new markets and clients, says Jens Juliussen.
Jens Juliussen will be based in our Stockholm office, where he and his family are living. He will take up the position from August 23, 2021.
