Despite the slowdown of the past 20 months, here at Goway we’ve worked hard to reimagine our brand and prepare for the inevitable rise in travel demand. Now that travel is returning and borders are reopening around the world, we’re uniquely positioned to strengthen our team with some vital additions to our staff. To this end, we’ve added industry veteran Rares Dumitru as the new National Account Manager for Canada.
In his over 20 years in the travel industry, Rares has worked for respected organizations such as Trafalgar Travel, Kensington Tours, Rail Europe, and most recently for LaCure Villas. He has experience in both wholesale and retail divisions and strong relationships across the industry. Originally hailing from Romania, Rares has travelled throughout the world, and so brings the kind of first-hand travel knowledge that is so essential to Goway’s team of Destination Specialists.
In his new role as National Account Manager for Canada, Rares will work with travel professionals across the country to strengthen the Goway brand and expand the travel opportunities within the industry. He’ll manage key accounts for Goway and leverage his years of experience to strengthen the company and the industry as a whole.
“I’m delighted to welcome Rares to the team in this newly-created role,” says Renee Stanton-Defaria, our General Manager of Sales at Goway. “Over the past 18 months, we’ve worked hard to strengthen Goway for the next 50 years. This has included investing in technological advancements, but also investing in new staff members with unique skill sets such as Rares. With his exceptional customer service skills, strong background in sales, and expertise in the destination markets we sell, Rares is the ideal person to join our team and help us grow nationally.”
“I’m excited to join such a fantastic organization and to have the opportunity to work alongside some of the most talented people in the industry,” adds Rare Dumitru about his new position. “Even though the last couple of years have been challenging, the future is bright and I look forward to partnering with travel professionals across Canada and working to strengthen relationships and grow the industry.”
With Rares joining us, we’ll continue to work hard to realize a lifetime of travel for our community of globetrotters. We’ll strengthen our relationships within the industry and continue to grow and empower travellers to see the world.
