Michael Foley – Banyan Tree Regional sales office Unites States of America – Former Director of global sales (now at Kerzner International)
Marco is a consummate professional. From the moment he introduced himself, I could tell he was ambitious, intelligent, experienced, and personable. With his independence, and very limited resources provided, Marco was able to make a big impact for our brand in a short time. His network of top-producing Luxury clients knows him well from all the different channels and connectivity, and it is because of his relationships that our brand is one of the Luxury leaders in the UK niche market. His proactive approach has inspired other Global Sales Offices in our company to consolidate the existing business and bolster very important partnerships with Travel Industry consortia members, related Luxury affiliations and new business development. I highly recommend Marco for his dependability and integrity, and he would be an asset to any company and team.
