Introducing the newest members of our team
We are very excited to announce some new appointments to our team, including our new Head of Independence, Natasha Marson. We’re also delighted to welcome Leanne Edwards and Helen Williamson to the team, who have taken on the roles of business development managers for the central and south UK regions of the Independence Group, with a further appointment to cover the north due to be announced soon.

Jonathon Woodall, Hays Travel’s chief operating officer, who was head of Independence Group in his previous role, said: “I’m delighted that Natasha has taken on the job; she is already making a positive impact on the Independence Group.

“We have seen a significant spike in interest to join from a variety of entrepreneurs both new to the industry as a result of the pandemic, and existing well-established businesses. Our investment in this new team is testament to our commitment to our members and the travel industry.”

Marson added: “It is so incredibly satisfying to be able to talk to such a variety of companies. Every chief executive or owner is different and our aim is to help them succeed in their own way.

“The new team will strengthen the already fantastic Independence Group support team based in Sunderland, by being on the road offering tailored support to new and existing members, building mutually beneficial relationships, and sharing their extensive knowledge of our products and systems.

“I am delighted to welcome both Leanne and Helen into the Independence Group family and they are equally as excited to get started and meet our members.”
