The first of Goway’s planned changes to its senior management team have been announced, with Anthony Saba being promoted to vice-president of Downunder & South Pacific, taking over from Shirley Rourke, said Bruce Hodge, Goway’s Founder and President, in a news release on Wednesday (Nov. 10).
Rourke will become Vice President of Groups Only to replace Barbara Norton, who is retiring in the near future.
These moves will be gradual and officially take effect on Jan. 1, 2022, in preparation for Goway’s new financial year starting April 1, 2022.
Norton will be staying on until at least April to assist with the transition as well as to work with Rourke to reinvent Goway’s Holidays of a Lifetime program, which will be incorporated into the refreshed Groups Only division.
More changes to the new Goway 50+ management team will be announced in the coming months as the world continues to open up to Globetrotters.
“All areas of our company have been refreshed and revitalized,” Hodge said.
Goway has also invested heavily in new technologies, which includes a new online training program and a brand new, customized reservation system.
“Our new interactive digital travel brochure, ‘Your Next Journey: The Best of Goway Travel,’ encapsulates our refreshed approach to doing business in a post-pandemic world,” Hodge said.
