TORONTO — Travel agents are invited to meet G Adventures’ three new global purpose specialists for Canada at a meet and greet on Nov. 11.

Taking place at 11 a.m. PST / 2 p.m. EST, the virtual session will be led by Erin Rogers who has been promoted to the role of national sales manager. Rogers has been with the company for 17 years.

She will be joined by the three newly appointed global purpose specialists (GPS), all of whom previously worked as global connection officers in G Adventures’ ‘Boombox’ reservations in Toronto and have frontline experience with travel agents and travellers.

Jenna English returns to the company after a two-year break from the travel industry in the role of GPS for British Columbia and the Northern Territories. Hilary Arsenault will be responsible for Quebec and the Maritimes, while Nuppy Mistry will look after the Ontario region.

During the meet and greet, the team will introduce themselves, update agents on what’s new for 2023, and exclusively reveal the deals for G Adventures’ upcoming Cyber Sale, which launches on Nov. 10, 2022.

David Green managing director for G Adventures in Canada, says he’s thrilled to have the combined experience of the three new GPS team members as the business returns to its pre-pandemic strength. He hopes to see many travel agents take part in the meet and greet.

“Our agents have been pivotal to our success over the past 33 years and we especially thank them for their continued support these past three years. I’m thrilled we’re able to offer them even more support and that we have Erin now leading this team across the country. Erin has proven herself as an excellent leader and the four of them together make a formidable team,” says Green.

On her new team, Rogers adds: Jenna, Hilary and Nuppy have hit the ground running in their new roles and their passion for G Adventures and its purpose is unparalleled. I can’t wait for our agency community to get to know them, and for us to keep changing people’s lives through travel together as we advocate for a better way to travel post-pandemic.”
