Lisa Cooper

Lisa Cooper KBC

Lisa is KBC’s Director of Trade & Representation and the longest serving team member, clocking up 14 years plus.  Lisa cut her teeth in PR at KBC, but sales is where her heart lies.  There’s nothing she enjoys more than developing close, mutually beneficial relationships with partners and clients, and she is acknowledged by her peers as a masterful operator.  Lisa’s organisational and diplomatic skills are second to none, helping her build and lead our trade team to great success.

Known by many simply as “Coops”, she started her 30 year career at Virgin Atlantic and is passionate about the travel industry. She’s travelled the globe, got married in Sorrento, Italy and explored an impressive 33 US states. Her travel highlights include a helicopter over Victoria Falls, visiting eight national parks across Montana, Wyoming and Utah for her ‘big birthday’ road trip, swimming with dolphins outside Melbourne, experiencing the Big 5 in South Africa, and spending time with the grizzlies in BC.  But she’s still waiting to see the elusive Orca!

Known for her fondness for fizz, Lisa can hear the pop of a cork at 50 paces, and likes nothing better than to cuddle up on the sofa with her three favourite things: her husband, black Labrador Ella, and a glass of prosecco!

I’ve known Lisa for a number of years whilst I have worked at Scott Dunn and have worked closely with her on a number of clients. Lisa supported our launch of New England back in 2014, helping us navigate a completely new destination and contract successfully with her in-depth destination knowledge and contacts. More recently, she’s helped us build our product in British Columbia for both Scott Dunn, and our sister brand Imagine Travel. Lisa really understands our customers, and the luxury travel industry, she works to deliver the standard of accommodation and activities to suit us. She’s highly organized, well informed and most importantly pro-active. Lisa is always available, and always delivers on her promises, which is incredibly valuable.

Testimonial Maudie Tomlinson

‘Lisa Cooper is a consummate professional with an outstanding reputation in the travel industry.  She’s a great negotiator, assertive, but always friendly, and able to come up with creative, mutually acceptable solutions.  She was my Virgin Atlantic account manager for over four years, first at Specialist Holiday Group and then at STA Travel, and my door was always open to her.’
