A BIG THANK YOU for your confidence in me and Playa and especially for giving me the exceptional opportunity to introduce you to Playa’s "Service from the Heart,” he wrote.
A successor will be appointed shortly
Roussin also assured travel advisors that they will remain in good hands, despite his departure.
