The Travel Corporation Canada has announced two new, strategic executive appointments. Cris David is now the president of Lion World Travel, while Brad Ford becomes president of Insight Vacations.
Jeff Element, president of The Travel Corporation Canada, commented: “One of TTC’s greatest strengths is our team members’ talents, strong skill sets and the ability to adapt, as our business continues to grow year over year. We are very committed to promoting from within, whenever possible.”
Element noted that: “Cris David and Brad Ford are proven, strong leaders who were both previously Contiki Canada’s President, and these lateral appointments perfectly compliment their respective, extensive industry experience. We heartily congratulate them both in their new roles.”
And he added: “Cris’ family roots are South African and he has admired and worked with Lion World Travel’s CEO, Lucile Sive for the past 15 years who is also a fellow South African and he has first-hand experience and knowledge of the African continent and its growing tourism economy. His eight years of leadership at Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold is the perfect segue to promote Lion World’s affordable luxury safaris.”
Element said: “Brad Ford was Contiki Canada’s President for six years and has effectively enhanced our relationships with our valued industry partners. Also, his in-depth expertise in promoting Europe, The Americas, Down Under and Asia will enable him to strategically highlight Insight Vacations’ ever expanding premium and luxury product portfolio across six continents. It is truly exciting times ahead for our organization and they have our full support.”
