TORONTO — The CTO’s Canadian office is no more but thankfully Nancy Drolet is staying in the travel industry and working to represent the region she loves as the new Sr. Director, Travel Trade for Jesson & Co. Communications.
Jesson & Co.’s travel clients include Cuba, Anguilla, Los Cabos and more.
In her new role Drolet will act as trade advisor on all key travel accounts. She will also continue to organize joint Caribbean events for those participating Caribbean countries to ensure the Caribbean remains top of mind for the trade in Canada.
At the CTO Drolet worked closely with 24 member countries. She joined the CTO in spring 2017 as its Business Development Representative in Canada. In October 2019 the CTO announced its plans to close the New York City office at the end of the year. Drolet’s work was an offshoot of the U.S. office. The CTO’s UK office is set to close Jan. 31.
Following news of the closure Drolet made it clear she was looking to stay in the travel industry. Her industry career also included a senior management position at Sears Travel where she managed up to 35 travel agencies. Drolet also worked at Sandals Resorts and Radisson Resorts of the Bahamas.
“I am excited to join Jesson & Co. Having worked with the team at Jesson through their efforts for clients such as Anguilla and Cuba, I can hit the ground running,” said Drolet. “I am fortunate to be able to continue enjoying the Caribbean while also adding other wonderful destinations as well as travel and hospitality clients around the world”.
Jesson President, Barbara Jesson, added: “We are just thrilled Nancy made the decision to join our team. She is a wonderful asset and complement to our travel and tourism practice. She was in high demand after her stint at CTO and we are honoured she chose Jesson.”
