Do you ever wonder about the voice on the other end of the telephone line when you call Group Sales? We thought so, and decided it was time for an introduction. Below, you’ll learn about members of our Affinity Group Sales Team, who are ready to help you plan your group’s next trip.
Sam Rosenberg, Senior Vice President, Traveler Relations
I recently rejoined Grand Circle as the Senior Vice President of Traveler Relations after a short retirement, assisting in expanding the sales and marketing of our group trips to affinity organizations. Having been in the business for over 35 years, it was difficult for me to stay away! I’ve traveled extensively throughout Europe, cruised from Amsterdam to the Black Sea, and vacationed in Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific. In my spare time, I enjoy a spirited game of tennis and spending time with my teenage daughter.
Troy Logan, Groups Account Executive
I joined Grand Circle in 2011 as a Traveler Support Associate, and I am extremely excited to have recently become a member of the Group Sales Department. I enjoy building lasting relationships with our travelers and could not be happier working with our Group Leaders—they have some of the most extensive travel experiences in the world, and I look forward to hearing about their journeys. I was born and raised in Maine, and have traveled throughout the entire U.S., including a brief time living in Denali National Park. On three different occasions I have visited South America, and I will be experiencing my first trip to Europe in November! In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, hiking, and spending time with friends, family, and my dog, Rufus.
Lanny Landis, Territory Sales Manager
I joined Grand Circle’s Group Affinity Sales Department after 14 years in the travel industry. I've been fortunate to visit 36 countries—some of my favorite experiences have been scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, a safari in Africa, a sunset in Mykonos, and a pub visit in Ireland. I’m always thinking about where my travels will take me next, and enjoy sharing experiences with fellow world travelers. One of the greatest benefits of travel has been to see the world through the eyes of my two teenage daughters. In my spare time, I'm an avid runner and am currently training for my first marathon.
Joan Thornton, Territory Sales Manager
Although new to Grand Circle, I have worked in the travel industry for 30 years with a focus on group travel. I’ve been blessed to have traveled the world to experience unforgettable moments like riding a camel in Jordan, tasting wine in Provence, walking the Stations of the Cross in Jerusalem, touring the Sydney Opera House, and cruising along the Danube River. I’ve also vacationed in Alaska, Canada, Bermuda, the Caribbean, and the Panama Canal. I love meeting with fellow world travelers to discuss future travel plans. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, bicycling, and bowling in a competitive league with my husband.
Travis Holloway, Territory Sales Manager
Although new to Grand Circle, I have been in the travel industry for many years, and I've experienced journeys to exciting destinations such as New Zealand, Austria, the Azores, and much of the Caribbean. I have been blessed to have cruised New Zealand's Milford Sound, and to have enjoyed lunch in the crater of a caldera in San Miguel, El Salvador. Traveling has been fantastic, but I'm really looking forward to working with Group Leaders and helping them see the world.
