Grutzner is an industry veteran with over 25 years of strategic sales experience in the guided vacations, hotel and cruise sectors. For the past six years he held the role of director of sales at Azamara Club Cruises. Prior to Azamara, Grutzner has held management roles with Collette Vacations, Reader’s Digest and Carlson Leisure Group. In the same written release, Grutzner called his new role a “dream job.”

Cappelli decided to step down in order to spend more time with his family after a very rigorous travel schedule the last five years, saying that “reaching this decision to leave has been very difficult for me and it was made with an abundance of consideration and diligence.” His accomplishments include growing U.S. business by over 40 percent in the past four years, winning notable trade partner and industry awards, and receiving three consecutive Insight Vacations “Office of the Year” awards.
