Virtuoso searching for new General Manager roles

Luxury travel network seeks regional leaders in Continental Europe, Mexico City

Virtuoso is seeking applicants for the newly posted role of General Manager, Europe, as the luxury and experiential global travel network moves forward with its vision for deeper in-market penetration.

LATTE can exclusively reveal, the latest GM role with Virtuoso to be promoted will be either London, UK or Munich, Germany-based (depending on the platform wannabe applicants use) however both job descriptions state the “ideal candidate will be based in Continental Europe.”

An expansion of regional leadership roles within the consortia was foreshadowed by LATTE earlier this year and restated by Virtuoso’s Senior Vice President of Global Operations, Michael Londregan, at this year’s Travel Week in Las Vegas, who flagged the network may eventually have up to a dozen GMs worldwide.

Presently, Virtuoso has five General Managers spread around the globe, namely in Australia/New Zealand (headed by Fiona Dalton), Latin America and Caribbean (Javier Arredondo), Europe, Middle East and Africa (Karen Joyce), Asia (Irene Lee) and Canada (Úna O’Leary).

Opening Event at VTW 2022: Jennifer Campbell, SVP, Network Products & Events (centre) was joined by GM's Fiona Dalton, Úna O’Leary, Irene Lee, Karen Joyce, and Javier Arredondo.

Londregan told LATTE in August that Virtuoso was keen to bolster its position in burgeoning luxury markets, pinpointing both EMEA and Latin America could use the additional ground on the feet due to the vast size of those regions.

“We’ll see EMEA split, we’ll definitely see Latin America split,” he said at the time.

The new role in Europe comes a few weeks after Virtuoso sought applications for a General Manager in Latin America (Mexico), with a preference for someone Mexico City-based. Applications for that role have closed.

Virtuoso’s job description for the General Manager, Europe role states:
“The GM must have a keen understanding of the market including cultural, political, and structural characteristics. In addition to business direction, budgetary and economic outlooks are key areas of focus. As such, the GM should be extremely capable in finance management and team leadership.”
