Cruise Planners Franchise Business Announces Senior VP

American Express Travel Representative Cruise Planners just announced it has promoted Theresa Scalzitti to the position of Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Brand Co-Owner and COO Vicky Garcia said Scalzitti has an integral role in the executive team and that her diligence, leadership and analytical skills have directly contributed to the company's improved efficiencies overall and its increased profits.

Since she joined the travel brand three years ago, Scalzitti has played an important part in the company's quest to remain ahead of the pack in terms of new ideas. It was recently named "Travel Agency Innovator of the Year" by the Cruise Lines International Association for its marketing tech advancements, which help its franchisees boost their profits.

Scalzitti spent two decades with a major cruise line before joining the travel brand as the VP of Sales and Marketing. Known both as an advocate for franchisees and someone who consistently exceeds sales goals, Scalzitti is viewed as a trailblazer by brand co-founder and CEO Michelle Fee, who also highlighted Scalzitti's many past accomplishments in the marketing sphere.

The biggest home-based travel franchise in the US, Cruise Planners has a network of over 2,500 franchisees who work as travel advisors and book travel and vacation experiences for their clients. This brand has numerous accolades to its name, including being named the top travel franchise opportunity by Entrepreneur Magazine for 16 years in a row and ranking as the top travel franchise by the franchisee satisfaction evaluation firm Franchise Business Review. In addition, Cruise Planners is a top producer with every major cruise line, including Princess Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International and more.
