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 — Travel Leaders Network has appointed Lindsay Pearlman to the newly-created position of Senior Vice President, International Leisure.
Pearlman reports to Travel Leaders Network President Roger E. Block, CTC.
“Lindsay will work with our International Partners to expand Travel Leaders Network leisure programs throughout Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific,” said Block. “Many of our international partner agencies have a very large leisure operation in addition to their corporate division and we are pleased that Lindsay will bring his years of industry experience to help us grow our leisure division with partners across many countries.”
Pearlman most recently served as Co-President of Ensemble, where he worked for 12 years, including as executive vice president and general manager of the retail travel group. Prior to Ensemble, Pearlman was with American Express Global Travel Services for 11 years in a variety of roles. Based in Toronto, Pearlman will work closely with Angeles Yugdar, Senior Vice President of International Markets for Travel Leaders Group.
