Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — The head of Travel Leaders Network has sent out an announcement to TL Network Canada members outlining the duties of new hire Lindsay Pearlman and long-time VP TL Network Canada, Christine James.
Travel Leaders Network President Roger E. Block, CTC, wanted to make sure there’s no confusion about Pearlman’s appointment and to confirm James’ position within the company.
“Dear Members: This week we welcomed Lindsay Pearlman to Travel Leaders Network as Senior Vice President, International Leisure.
“Lindsay will oversee our expansion with leisure-focused markets throughout Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
“He will work closely with Angeles Yugdar, Senior Vice President of International Markets for Travel Leaders Network.
“Christine James, Vice President of TL Network Canada, and her team will continue to do their outstanding work, supporting all operations for TL Network.
“Canada remains a part of our North America operations, which is separate from our international division. Through our international expansion, we now have new partner agencies in more than 65 countries.
