In September 2017 we were pleased to announce that we have welcomed Veronika Vackova, known as Nika, to The DMC Advantage team as Sales Executive.
Nika is a graduate from the University of Economics in Prague with a Bachelor degree in corporate finance and management. Soon after completing her studies she moved to England where she is now fully enjoying British life in Buckinghamshire.
Having experienced her first working abroad opportunity in 2014 when she travelled to Morocco and Crete as a representative for a travel agency, Nika was drawn to the travel and events world. We are thrilled to have her on board as she is confident, friendly, enthusiastic and has already proven to be a great asset to our team as she immerses herself in the world of DMC representation. With trips to Spain, Malta and Iceland Nika has enjoyed a whirlwind start to her DMC Advantage career and is looking forward to many more foreign adventures and building her industry knowledge and contacts.

Introducing the Support team:
Lucy Dowson began her travel industry career at Trailfinders in 1996 following a year’s marketing and sales placement with British Airways. In 1999 she joined Dnata (later Emirates Holidays) in a sales role before a position selling the Fairmont Dubai to the UK corporate market. This corporate experience served her well during her 3 years at The Langham London where she focussed on both corporate meetings and events sales and transient accounts. Her recent experience has been in a number of sales, marketing and administrative roles at De Vere Venues Latimer Place.
Tim Penrose started his career in travel with USIT Campus, selling adventure travel to the youth market after been bitten by the travel bug himself on a round the world trip. In 2000 he joined Emirates Tours in a Sales Support role, before moving into the Sales & Marketing team. Developing an understanding of the luxury end of travel, he became more involved in the online arena and producing the high-end content required for the brand’s growth. From 2008 he was responsible for the day to day success of the company website, overseeing the launch of the fully bookable site and the re-branding to Emirates Holidays. Joining in December 2015, Tim is thrilled to be working with James, Simon, Nika and Lucy in this exciting period of growth for The DMC Advantage.
