MSG's new Finance Director

MSG Tours Ltd announces new directorship with Company expansion during Covid-19.

Exponential growth and forward bookings in school educational travel, sporting tours and international sports events / hospitality provide the platform for extending the MSG Tours Ltd leadership team through 2021 and beyond.

Following MSG’s recent appointment as an Official Travel Agent (OTA) for Rugby World Cup France 2023, Finance Manager, Lucy Hey steps up to the Board to oversee the Company’s projects and acquisitions following four years of strategic growth management, including a recent return from maternity leave.

The invitation and acceptance by Lucy Hey to step up to the Board capacity follows a robust recruitment campaign during the pandemic. Three appointments have been made within the Company’s events and marketing teams that defy the industry trend of head count losses in and around the travel sector.

Introducing MSG’s new Finance Director

MSG’s new Finance Director, Lucy Hey said:

“Being part of an up-and-coming business that challenges the industry with everything it does has been such an honour.

“I’m delighted that I’ve supported the company through its start-up years (including the pandemic of 2020) so to join the Board as Finance Director of what is now an established business makes me very proud.”

CEO, Mark Gardner commented on the exciting news:

“Whilst many travel operators have reduced scale and operations during Covid-19, our growth in all operational sectors has supported the acquisition and promotion of key talent for our organisation’s three international offices.

“Both a precocious talent and hugely popular figure in our organisation, Lucy’s trajectory announces one of the Midlands’ success stories in female leadership at just 22 years of age.”

Lucy will commence her new directorship with MSG at the beginning of the New Year, in January 2021.
