Swan Hellenic has expanded its North America team by hiring industry pros Eric Bacon and Kelly Predmesky as sales directors, according to a press release.
“We’re delighted to have two new sales directors with the talent and dynamism of Eric and Kelly. They each bring a refreshingly open style that’s perfect for Swan Hellenic, combined with razor-sharp focus on delivering the highest standards of support and service,” stated Swan Hellenic Vice-President of Sales, North America Gordon Dirker.
Florida-based Predmesky will oversee the Eastern States, while Bacon, who is based in California, will be responsible for the West.
PAX has confirmed that both individuals will also assist travel advisors in Canada.
Predmesky has more than 17 years of experience and she previously worked for Celestyal Cruises. Prior to that, she worked with MEDJI Tours and held positions with Contiki and STA Travel.
Bacon worked as Celestyal's West Coast business development manager for two years. He was also a consultant for Atlas Ocean Voyages when the luxury liner’s launched at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Earlier experience includes four years as regional sales director, Canada, as well as posts at Rail Europe and several Canadian travel agencies.
