Central Holidays recently named Arthur Berman as vice president of its newly created Latin America and Cuba Division.
Berman joined Central Holidays in May 2015 and brings more than 50 years of experience in the travel and tourism industry, primarily promoting tourism to these respective regions.
His major responsibilities in this role will be to implement strategies that best market the company’s new, robust collection of escorted Latin America and Cuba programs. Berman’s hiring coincides with Central Holidays’ recent expansion, which includes the tour operator’s roll-out of five dynamic on-the-ground Cuban programs as well as a "Cruise Around Cuba."
Prior to joining Central Holidays, Berman most recently served as the executive vice president of LATOUR, where he spearheaded the tour operator’s South America division. Berman previously worked as the president of Moment’s Notice Travel Club, a retail agency promoting last minute cruises and land packages.
“Given Arthur’s vast experience within the Latin America and Caribbean regions, coupled with his myriad accomplishments within the travel and tourism industry, I am highly confident that he will bring a wealth of knowledge and opportunity to our Central Holidays’ family," said Gianni Miradoli, CEO of Central Holidays, in a written statement.
