TPI appoints Barbara Finn as managing director

Debut Journeys a division of Travel Professionals International (TPI) has appointed Barbara Finn to the position of managing director. 

After a brief break from almost three years as director, Canada for Travel Edge, Finn is ready to take on her next challenge in the Canadian travel industry.

Finn is well known in the travel industry and has extensive industry experience in all aspects of travel operations, management and sales. Finn’s new role at Debut Journeys will encompass enhancing their current offering to attract high-value luxury travel advisors, creating programmes to support the diverse needs of Advisors in the luxury travel space while at the same time elevating the Debut Journeys brand.

“The opportunity at Debut Journeys was one that I could not pass up,” said Finn. “Having worked in the luxury travel market for the past several years has made me realize that there are key differences between being a travel advisor and a luxury travel advisor. I feel that I can greatly contribute to the mutual success of the Advisor and the company given my background, track record and expertise.”

Debut Journeys’ luxury advisors will be able to take advantage of the existing relationships and programmes available through TPI as well as more meaningful opportunities to increase sales and revenue. For luxury Advisors who meet a minimum requirement, the 100 per cent commission split offering will be no doubt be of interest.

“We are thrilled to have Barbara joining our team at Debut Journeys, I see so much potential in what she will bring to the company and trust that her expertise will be a huge benefit to assisting our luxury Advisors” said Zeina Gedeon, CEO of TPI.
