Ady Gelber, CEO and chairman of the board of IsramWorld, reports organizational changes at Isram Wholesale Tours & Travel.
At Isram USA, 20-year travel industry veteran Richard Krieger was named president of IsramWorld. Responsibilities include subsidiary companies, Orient Flexi Pax Tours, Europetoo, Latour, Escapade Vacations, Holy Land Sun Tours, The Elite Travel Collection, A Woman's View and Vistas.
Previously, Gelber had served as president and CEO of IsramWorld. His role has now transitioned to chairman and CEO.
In the future, Gelber said Isram Israel will operate as a separate company headed by Shaanan Kraus. Gelber said he has relinquished his interest in Isram's Israeli company in order to focus exclusively on Isram USA.
In turn, Shaanan has agreed to relinquish his interest in Isram's U.S. company in order to develop Isram's business in Israel.
Both Isram companies will continue to maintain strong ties with each other, with Isram Israel providing services to Isram USA, Gelber said. Operations will continue to run seamlessly, offering North American clients world-class service, Gelber said.
Established in 1967, IsramWorld is celebrating its 46th anniversary this year. The company and its wholly owned subsidiaries are members of the USTOA $1 Million Travelers Assistance Program.
