Russell Meara

Senior Account Director

What I have done…
After beginning life as a Professional Goalkeeper at Southampton FC, I finally found my vocation when I joined the specialist Tour Operator Canadian Affair in 1997. A nine year career culminated in the position of Sales and Marketing Director. l then expanded my industry experience at Quest Travel and Thomson Worldwide, part of TUI UK, before joining Hills Balfour.

What I do now…
On joining Hills Balfour in July 2008  I took on the company’s newest account, at that time, as the Senior Sales and Marketing Manager for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. I am responsible for all leisure sales and marketing activity as well as overseeing the MICE market.

What I do for fun…
Aside from the obvious perks of travelling out to Las Vegas frequently, I enjoy spending time with my family and getting away from it all on the golf course.

What I bring to Hills Balfour…
I bring with me extensive knowledge of North America and the UK Tour Operator market having worked within the Sales, Marketing and Product departments of leading UK tour operators listed above.
