As we turn the page on an incredible 2016, we have so much to be thankful for. The year brought great growth for Elite Alliance. We introduced new properties, surpassed 4,500 members, increased travel in our Marketplace offering, introduced exciting member benefits and travel opportunities, added to our family of companies, and most importantly delivered on our promise of providing our members with exceptional service and travel experiences.
This year brought two exciting additions as we welcomed sister-companies, Elite Alliance Hospitality and Club Connect to our growing brand portfolio. These additions bring depth to Elite Alliance’s offerings and round out our management and communication platform(s).
We added to our service team, congratulating Karrie Mastrella, Director of Membership, and Cristina Taormina, Member Engagement Manager on their new positions, along with Jennie Daniels and Anna Reiber, Exchange Coordinators, and Junito Bermudez, Director of Web Development. We added The Phillips Club II in New York City, renewed our long-standing relationship with the iconic Palazzo Tornabuoni in Florence, welcomed three great properties in the Dominican Republic, added the Long Bay Beach Club in Turks & Caicos, and welcomed Equity Residences Platinum Fund investors and their residences to Elite Alliance.
We are obviously very excited about 2016, but even more so with what we have planned for the new year ahead!
