Although I went to journalism school to be the next Oprah, I ended up as the launch queen of travel sites.
-Led U.S. PR launches of KAYAK, Jetsetter and Routehappy; contributed to PR launch of Orbitz. -Launched KAYAK in four countries outside the U.S., managing multiple PR agencies globally; managed communications for KAYAK M&A and several funding rounds. -Launched several new business verticals for Jetsetter including travel agent business and vacation homes, in addition to European expansion to the UK market. -Placed over 250 articles for Routehappy’s launch in a six month period.
What can I say, I enjoy the adrenaline rush (and sleepless nights) of openings and launches. Additional launch experience includes:
-Launched several new cruise ships and one new port for Royal Caribbean. -Opened both Ritz-Carlton hotels in NYC. -Opened Mohegan Sun Casino’s hotel and conference facility. -Opened restaurant and retail additions to Mohegan Sun Casino. -Opened restaurants for Smith & Wollensky Restaurant Group. -Opened 50+ Starbucks stores in mid-Atlantic region. -Opened several exhibits for The Smithsonian Institution.
