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.
MONTEGO BAY — Couples Resorts, Jamaica has welcomed Pauline Abatemarco-Pigott as its new Vice President, North American Sales.
In the newly created role, Pigott will lead a sales force located across North America, and focus on expanding and refining travel agent programs that have been the foundation for Couples Resorts’ success since inception. She will also work closely with major tour operators, wholesalers and online travel agencies that feature the Couples Resorts brand in their portfolio of Caribbean offerings.
“I’m truly excited to be a part of the Couples Resorts family,” said Pigott. “My goal is to enhance and build upon the more than 70 years of industry leadership represented in the Couples Resorts brand.”
Pigott brings with her more than 25 years of experience in hospitality sales, and has worked on both sides of the equation as a buyer and seller of all-inclusive resort products in the Caribbean.
Applauding her “amazing reputation” and calling her a “seasoned sales professional that produces solid results”, Dean Sullivan, Chief Marketing Officer for Couples Resorts, Jamaica, said: “I’ve admired Pauline’s work for many years and look forward to immediate results as she crafts our future sales strategies in North America.”
