Gordon Takes Helm at Group Voyagers

After tragedy, tour operator sees new leadership

Phillip Gordon has been named president and CEO of Littleton, Colo.-based Group Voyagers Inc., which markets its tour products as Globus & Cosmos. Previously chief operating officer, Gordon has been with the company for 28 years.

Gordon was named to the position after the tragic death in late January of Paolo Mantegazza, 34, the son of Sergio Mantegazza, president of the Globus Group, based in Lugano, Switzerland. “While my family and I are extremely devastated by the loss of our son, I am relieved that we have such an experienced and highly qualified member of our management team to continue to grow our business and maintain the highest quality standards our customers and travel partners have come to expect,” Sergio Mantegazza said.
