Judek comes to Virtuoso from senior executive positions at Royal Bank of Canada and American Express. Meanwhile Allen held a senior executive position at Alliance de l’Industrie Touristique du Québec. Judek is based in Toronto, while Allen is based in Montreal.
“Our emphasis on the Canadian market continues to grow, and I couldn’t be more pleased to welcome both Anna and James to Virtuoso and my team,” said O’Leary. “Their collective talents bolster this network’s commitment to our members and partners within Canada. We are optimistic about travel’s resurgence in Canada, and by expanding our regional team, we are better prepared to meet consumer demand and achieve success.”
