American Affair works closely with the travel trade most recently launching an incentive giving agents the chance of winning a multistate holiday for two when they make a multistate booking with American Affair of two or more states.

American Affair, the sister operator to Canadian Affair, announces the expansion of its commercial team with the appointment of Mandy McGlade as Product Manager and the promotion of Stuart Rogers to Head of Product and Commercial.

Mandy McGlade joins the American Affair team as Product Manager to develop bespoke holiday packages to the USA, and draws on a wealth of managerial and marketing experience. She was Product Manager at Newmarket Holidays, and held various other industry roles at Titan Travel and Kuoni, as well as Senior Account Manager at KBC PR and Marketing

After 20 years working across the Canadian Affair and American Affair operations, Stuart Rogers will now take on a more senior role dedicated to American Affair as Head of Product and Commercial. In his new role, he will lead the expansion of American Affair’s destination portfolio and, with it, the increasing choice of itineraries and suppliers which American Affair will offer. He will also oversee American Affair’s partnership with Brand USA and its future FAM trip programmes.

Chris Hedley, Managing Director of American Affair and Canadian Affair, says “American Affair has grown substantially since we launched and it’s important that we continue to invest in our operation if we are to deliver high quality USA travel packages to our travel agent partners and their customers.

“We are delighted to welcome Mandy, and to recognise Stuart’s longstanding contribution to our business with his new role. I am confident that, together, they will drive effective growth for American Affair in the years ahead.”

Stuart Rogers, Head of Product and Commercial, says “I am thrilled to be taking on this new role within the American Affair team, in which we will continue to deliver exceptional products and services for our agents and their customers. The travel industry is dynamic and ever-evolving, and American Affair is dedicated to ensuring that we not only meet but exceed the expectations of our clients. I am particularly excited to welcome Mandy to our team. Her extensive knowledge of the USA brings a valuable perspective to our endeavours, and I look forward to working with her and American Affair delivering on the exciting opportunities that lie ahead.

Mandy McGlade, Product Manager, says “American Affair has been expanding rapidly making it an exciting time to join the team. With ambitious plans for the future of the company, I look forward to adding to the innovative ideas and plans that are in store.”
