SANTA ROSA, Calif., July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Food & Wine Trails, which specializes in exclusive culinary travel experiences, has announced the additions of Greg Nacco, Vice President of Business Development, and Carolyn O'Neill, Director of Operations. Nacco and O'Neill both come to Food & Wine Trails with a wealth of experience in the luxury travel and cruise industries. In February of 2016, Food & Wine Trails became an independent division of Adelman Travel. Since the beginning of the relationship, Adelman has invested in new resources that will allow the company to expand their offerings to meet the increasing demand for unique epicurean tours and cruises.
Prior to joining Food & Wine Trails, Nacco held positions in sales and marketing, group development and operations with Cruise Specialists and Golden Bear Travel, affiliates of Travel Leaders and American Express respectively. As Vice President of Business Development for Food & Wine Trails, Nacco will head the sales organization and work directly with winery and cruise line partners to expand the brand both domestically and globally.
"Greg Nacco is well known in the cruise industry and has extensive knowledge of the luxury segment of the industry," said Larry Martin, Founder of Food & Wine Trails. "As the wine and cruise industries become more competitive, his experience in these areas allows us to continue to offer the superior quality and experiences for which we've become so well-known."
"I am extremely excited to work for a company that is so highly respected and innovative," said Nacco. "We simultaneously meet the needs of both our cruise line and winery partners; our objective is to strengthen customer bonds for the wineries while bringing more passengers to the cruise lines."
Carolyn O'Neill, a native of California, recently returned to the U.S. after spending over 20 years in Australia where she owned and operated an event management firm that specialized in luxury travel incentives. Carolyn's role as Director of Operations for Food & Wine Trails is a new position that will primarily focus on the development and expansion of the operation as the company continues to grow.
