16-year company veteran Theresa Gatta, who most recently served as Travel Impressions' VP of sales, has left the company. Travel Impressions has announced that Senior Sales Director Janet Heinz and Senior Director of Field Sales Sheri Pasternak will be co-heading the organization's sales operation. 

“Theresa Gatta’s leadership had an instrumental impact on our growth in recent years at Travel Impressions. Her positive attitude, work ethic and passion helped inspire our sales team to exceed agents’ expectations, but at the end of the day, the family and personal lives of even our most valued team members come first,” said Jeff Clarke, president of Travel Impressions
