Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold have announced the promotion of Anthony Sollecito Rich from northeast district sales manager to director of national accounts and luxury brand ambassador for the United States. Rich, who spent three years serving as northeast district sales manager, was promoted to the new role in August.
Rich began his career in the music business, and for over a decade produced a wide range of Grammy Award-winning artists while leading marketing and branding campaigns for Jive Records. His work outside of Jive included music activations for Norman Lear, PSNY Clothing, Brand Jordan, Nike, Hennessey, VICE, Union and Belvedere Vodka. Rich also produced Playing For Change, a worldwide music movement and charity aimed to bring people together through music. Rich is still an active board member of the Playing For Change Foundation, which builds music schools in impoverished nations, Insight Vacations said.
Rich left the music business in 2015 to join Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold. Aside from growing sales in his territory, Insight Vacations said that Rich built the brands’ music format, creating soundtracks for the various destinations featured for Insight and Luxury Gold. He also earned a top achiever award for 2019 for his efforts in growing sales in New York and New Jersey.
Rich will continue to assist all Travel Corporation (TTC) brands with his music acumen. His curation can be heard on the Joie de Vivre, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises’ super ship.
Rich resides in Queens, NY, with his wife Allison Du Val. He will report to Kristina Miranda, vice president of sales of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, and can be reached at [email protected].
