Travel + Leisure Co., formerly Wyndham Destinations, has appointed Noah Brodsky to the new role of president, Travel + Leisure Group. He will also retain his previous role as chief brand officer.
According to Michael Brown, president/CEO of Travel + Leisure Co., Brodsky steps into this new leadership role based on his previous accomplishments as chief brand officer, 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 to expand the company’s reach within the global leisure travel industry.
“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,” said 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 oversees 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, the company reports. As chief brand officer, he also continues 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 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, offering exclusive benefits and perks when traveling around the world and when 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,” said 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 previously served as SVP, worldwide loyalty and customer engagement for Wyndham Hotel Group, where he was responsible for the evolution of Wyndham Rewards. Prior to joining Wyndham, Brodsky served as chief experience officer at WeWork and VP, global brand management for Sheraton at Starwood Hotels and Resorts. He began his career with Four Seasons in resort operations and has worked on five continents.
