“After an incredibly rewarding role on the consumer marketing side at Quark Expeditions, I'm incredibly excited to announce that I have been promoted to director of trade marketing,” Canape told PAX in a statement. “This new position enables me to draw on 10 years of experience in the travel trade marketing space both in-house and on the agency side.”
Canape said he “very much” looks forward to connecting with all of his industry colleagues over the coming months — “especially now that I've just returned from my first expedition to Antarctica on our game-changing new ship, Ultramarine.”
