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.
MISSISSAUGA — Air Canada Vacations has named Erminia Nigro General Manager, Sales – Ontario & National Accounts.
She joins Air Canada Vacations from TravelBrands where she most recently held the position of Director of Sales, having spent the past 16 years with the company. Before that she was at Sunquest for four years as a BDM. Her first two years in the industry were at Regent Holidays.
In her new role at ACV Nigro’s Sales team comprises five Area Sales Managers – including Krista Cardona, Juan Contreras, Aaron Crawford, Dianne Pedroso, and a fifth salesperson planned for the Ontario and Manitoba markets – and one Manager of National Accounts. Her new role includes sales oversight and management of the Ontario and Manitoba regions.
Nigro will also be responsible for national accounts across the country including budgeting, marketing, and contract development and execution. Based in the Mississauga office, she will report to Dana Gain, Senior Director of Sales, Groups & Partnerships.
“Erminia’s knowledge of the industry, her sales and management experience, and her extensive network put her in the perfect position to lead our Ontario Sales and National Accounts teams,” says ACV’s Managing Director, Nino Montagnese. “We are looking forward to Erminia’s many contributions and are delighted to welcome her to the Air Canada Vacations family.”
