United Airlines has appointed a former manager at Cathay Pacific at its new director of sales for Australia and New Zealand.

Julie Reid, who has been sales and marketing manager for Australia at Cathay for the past three years and has also worked at travel services provider HRG, takes up her new role on May 20, United said in a statement on Tuesday.

She replaces Alison Espley, who has been appointed as managing director for Japan and Pacific sales and is moving to United’s Tokyo office.

“Julie brings to her role nearly 30 years of extensive global experience within the aviation, travel and hotel sectors,” Espley said.

“I am confident that she will provide strong and inspiring leadership to the Australia and New Zealand sales team and I look forward to working with her in her new role.”

United flies from Los Angeles to Melbourne and Sydney, as well as from San Francisco to Sydney and Cairns to Guam.
