Globus Announces Promotions

The Globus family of brands has expanded. With new family vacations, additional religious itineraries, the upcoming Monograms pre- and post- cruise packages, new tours and river cruises, Globus has shifted into high gear for 2006.

As part of this effort to maintain the quality of products and services, Globus announced four recent promotions in the company’s senior management team.





Scott Nisbet will assume the role of senior vice president and chief operating officer. Douglas Duncan will become vice president of sales. Steve Born will take on the role of vice president of marketing and Pam Hoffee is now vice president of product and operations.

“Each of these individuals brings years of experience and valuable insight into creating and sustaining our products,” said Philip Gordon, president and CEO of the Globus family of brands.

Scott Nisbet’s new role will entail providing support to the sales, marketing, customer care, product and operations and technology departments.


Nisbet has been with Globus for more than seven years. Under his leadership, the company has redoubled efforts to build relationships with travel agencies, as well as expanded its product lines to include independent travel, family vacations and religious pilgrimages.





As newly appointed vice president of marketing, Steve Born’s duties will include managing the customer care department, in addition to his previous position in the marketing department.

During the past five years, Born has led a staff of 13, overseeing all facets of marketing, including strategic planning, travel agent support, consumer acquisition, loyalty, online and partnerships.





Douglas Duncan will continue to support his current team and oversee the Canadian sales operation as part of his advancement.

Duncan originally joined the company five years ago in the role of director of sales and has worked to strengthen ties with the travel agent community.

Hoffee’s past two years of work with Globus will continue in her recently acquired promotion. She has led the team that develops the North America and exotics products for the Globus, Cosmos and Monograms brands.

She will continue to lead this product development team, support key air and tour operations directors and assist with inventory and documentation in her new role.

Globus aims to follow several years of successfully developing and marketing an expanded range of brands and products with these organizational changes.

“Looking at 2006, we are confident in what the Globus family of brands has to offer agents and their clients,” said Gordon. “The company hopes the promotions of Nisbet, Duncan and Hoffee will allow and support continued growth into the future.”
