Amber Travel Partnership Acquired by Primary
Amber Travel Partnership, a group of three successful Yorkshire-based travel specialists, has been acquired by Primary.
The management of the company has been augmented with the appointment of Steve Kimber as new Chief Executive and David Gaster as Commercial Director. Both have spent many years in the travel industry, most recently working with short breaks specialist Cresta Holidays. The existing management team will remain in place, and the founding directors will all take up consultancy roles within the group to ensure continuity within the business.
Amber commenced trading in January 2004 and is made up of Great Rail Journeys (“GRJ”), Inntravel and Filoxenia, with each company having a distinct focus and identity. The companies are leaders within their niches and each have the potential to widen their product offering even further. Inntravel provides an award winning range of independent, gentle activity holidays throughout the world. GRJ offers holidays by rail across Europe and escorted train journeys through spectacular scenery in some of the world's most fascinating territories including Australia, Japan and Peru. Filoxenia is a leading specialist in holidays to quiet, little known corners of Greece.
Rob Foreman joins the Amber board on behalf of Primary.
