  • Francine Martin, Voyages Régence
  • Karen Fine, Flight Centre
  • Béatrice Charmettant, Voyages Claudelle
  • Jennifer Brousseau, Sportvac
  • Marie-Ève Cloutier, Club Voyages Tourbec Vaudreuil / Lapointe
  • Nathalie Guilbert, Groupe Voyages VP
  • Michelle Green, Travel Edge
  • Martine Phaneuf, Vacances Le Faubourg

Why was the Board created?

Selected by Club Med, these professionals represent the vast range of expertise and experience in today’s travel industry; from family vacations in the Caribbean, to ski trips, group trips and getaways around the world. 

Club Med created this board to include its travel partners in discussions on the company’s global strategies, challenges, newest resort offerings and travel innovations.

“We created the Travel Professionals Advisory Board to facilitate communication between our brand and our loyal travel partners," said Jacinda Lowry, National Sales Director of Club Med Canada. "We hope these interactive meetings will enable our partners to collaborate with the company and have them contribute to Club Med’s future direction and success."

This first meeting was an opportunity to involve board members in reflecting on Club Med’s development pillars, including Meetings & Events by Club Med. The group also explored the company’s goals and plans for the future Club Med Québec Charlevoix resort, which will open its doors in December 2020.

The first meeting of the Club Med Travel Professionals Advisory Board will be followed by other engagements, notably a familiarization trip and an invitation to the Club Med Québec Charlevoix opening event.
