No stranger to the Canadian travel industry, Josephs has been with Unique Vacations Canada since 2003. He has held a variety of increasingly responsible positions moving from a regional business development manager in Ontario to National Manager, Industry Relations before his most recent role as Senior Manager, Events, managing both intimate and large-scale Sandals events for travel advisors across North America and the Caribbean.
