ORLANDO, Fla. — Travel + Leisure Co. (formerly Wyndham Destinations) has appointed Noah Brodsky to the new role of President, Travel + Leisure Group and Chief Brand Officer.
Michael Brown, president and CEO of Travel + Leisure Co., says Brodsky steps into this new leadership role based on his previous accomplishments as Chief Brand Officer; a role he retains and where he was instrumental in the 2018 evolution of Wyndham Destinations as an independent public company and last month’s acquisition of the Travel + Leisure brand.
“Since joining our team in 2017, Noah has been a catalyst for innovation and transformation within our company, with his passion for travel resonating across the organization,” says Brown. “I look forward to his continued achievements as he pivots to assume leadership of an important new driver of our future growth.”
As president of Travel + Leisure Group, Brodsky will oversee the development of and worldwide growth of new travel products and services that leverage the Travel + Leisure reputation, expertise and content library — including the group’s subscription-travel clubs, online travel-booking platforms and brand-licensing agreements. As Chief Brand Officer, he will also continue to have oversight of the global brand, digital and customer-relationship management (CRM) organizations for Travel + Leisure Co.
Under Brodsky’s leadership, the company is introducing a new way to plan and book travel, unveiling the new travel resource booktandl.com, powered by the trusted content from the Travel + Leisure media team. The new online vacation-booking platform will also lay the foundation for the anticipated summer launch of a new Travel + Leisure subscription-travel club, which will offer exclusive benefits and perks when travelling, as well as at home.
“I am incredibly excited to lead this new area of our business, as we expand our offerings beyond our core vacation-ownership and -exchange businesses,” says Brodsky. “We’re creating a pathway for consumers to experience the world through the expert guidance of Travel + Leisure, introducing a whole new way to dream about, plan and book travel.”
Brodsky is an executive sponsor of the Travel + Leisure Co. Global Inclusion and Diversity Council and the Asian and Pacific Islander diversity resource group. He has also been instrumental in strengthening the company’s LGBTQ+ engagement and support. Brodsky’s innovation in the industry has been recognized through multiple awards, including Orlando Business Journal’s 2018 40 Under 40; Top 25 Extraordinary Minds in Hospitality in 2015 by the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International; and Brand Innovators’ 2016 40 Under 40.
