Orlando and California – August 12, 2014 – Tourico Holidays, a global leader in wholesale travel brokerage, today announced that industry veteran Angela Lasky has been named the new Sr. Regional Product Director of California. Lasky joined the Tourico team last June, overseeing hotel contracting in Chicago.
“Angela has nearly 20 years of travel industry experience and the leadership skills she’s displayed in the Chicago market made her an easy choice to oversee our California contracting team,” said Bill Chambers, Vice President of Product in the United States for Tourico Holidays. “With the new hire and new Los Angeles office that we opened in June, we plan on helping California travel suppliers broaden their network and sell even more room nights in 2015.”
Tourico Holidays also created a new team to address contracting secondary and tertiary destinations across the U.S. The new Product Director of Emerging Destinations, Daniel Santiago of Orlando, will be responsible for increasing travel supplier partners in smaller markets throughout North America. Santiago was formerly a Product Specialist and Product Trainee for Tourico.
“As we continue to grow and take on large U.S. clients, like Sam’s Club Travel, it’s crucial that our inventory of travel products is robust – even in the smallest corners of the country,” said Chambers. “Adding a position specifically dedicated to these more rural areas exemplifies our commitment to ensuring our clients always have a great selection and industry-best rates – whether they’re looking for a hotel in New York City or a rental car in Bentonville, Arkansas.”
Michael Breske, graduate of the Tourico Holidays Travel Academy was also promoted to Product Director East Central (Northeast). Breske will oversee a team in charge of contracting Boston, D.C., Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and New England.
