Virtuoso regional growth

CRISTINA Magni has been appointed to the role of regional director, Australia and NZ, for the Virtuoso luxury travel network as part of expansion plans for the group across Asia-Pacific.

Evan Pierce has also been named as Virtuoso’s regional director, Asia, and will relocate to Singapore to take on the newly created role.

Virtuoso APAC md Michael Londregan said the appointments followed strong performance in the region over the last five years.

“Virtuoso has made the commitment to reward this success by further investment in our in-market resources,” he said.

Londregan said 2017 had seen more than 20% growth in the Virtuoso regional network, much of which was attributed to existing members growing their business through expansion and acquisition.

“Evan and Cristina have been instrumental in these results and their development to regional director roles will ensure Virtuoso is well placed to expand further in 2019,” he said.

Locally Magni will oversee the management of Virtuoso member programs in Australia and NZ “where we expect significant performance growth in what must be described as both a contested and commoditising landscape,” Londregan said.
