SALESPERSON OF THE YEAR WINNER
A genuine love of travel and enthusiasm for the industry underpin Susan Haberle’s approach to her work.
Susan began her travel industry career in the mid 1990s, following a 12 month backpacking trip through Europe, Israel and India. When the money ran out she took up a role at Contiki Tours, firstly in sales in London, and then on the road in Europe, Russia and Scandinavia as a Tour Manager and Training Manager.
On her return to Australia, Susan re-entered sales as a business development manager with Sunlover Holidays. She was promoted to National Sales Manager and managed the team through the transition from government to private ownership.
Susan joined APT Travel Group nine years ago and was promoted to the role of Commercial Manager Retail in 2013. In her role, Susan manages the sales teams for both APT and Travelmarvel brands as well as the group’s national retail relationships.
Susan is a strong believer in collaboration and the need to continuously find new ways to support APT’s retail partners. Continued product innovation and the ever-changing dynamics of the travel industry both stimulate and challenge her on a daily basis.
