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.
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.
