On behalf of the search committee and the Executive Committee, I am pleased to announce that John Severini has been chosen as the new President/CEO for CalTIA beginning June 1. I have attached John's announcement news release for your review, but as you'll see, John possesses a great deal of senior level experience in the tourism industry, including serving on the start up team for Disney Cruises in which he served as Vice President. John is also the former President/CEO of Trafalgar Tours, a major international tour operator. What impressed the search committee the most was Joh's entrepreneurial qualities, a trait he plans to bring to CalTravel in force. He has several very engaging ideas on growing the organization's revenue stream and thus its abilities to deliver even more quality programs to our members.
Prior to his assuming office, John is already immersing himself with the organization, reviewing our new strategic plan, talking with several executive committee members regarding our budget and will be going to Sacramento to meet with Ross, Tami later this month to discuss the transition. He also hopes to meet with Caroline Beteta during that visit.
You will all have the opportunity to meet with John at COT. As discussed at our last meeting, we will be scheduling a special board meeting just prior to the Conference on Tourism so you can formally meet him. We plan on formally presenting him to the membership at COT where he will outline some of his plans for the organization.
...
As outlined in our newly approved Strategic Plan, we have a very ambitious but attainable agenda and it requires someone like John to carry it out to move CalTravel to a new level. I think you will enjoy working with John as he is friendly, approachable and down to earth. We believe he is the perfect match for CalTravel. If you would like to reach John, his email is jseverini@caltravel.org He will be based at his home office in Huntington Beach.
