Adrian Piotto named as Managing Director for G Adventures
G Adventures, the world’s leading adventure travel company, has appointed Adrian Piotto as the new Managing Director for the Australia and New Zealand region.
Having worked in the industry for 19 years including as General Manager of Busabout, Haggis and Shamrocker Adventures Australia and New Zealand, Head of Sales for Contiki Australia and most recently Head of Sales for Trafalgar Australia, Adrian brings outstanding business acumen to the role.
“Adrian brings a wealth of industry knowledge to his role at G Adventures and is the perfect person to be leading G Adventures into its next phase of growth down under. The company could not be happier with his appointment,” said founder of G Adventures, Bruce Poon Tip.
“I have been drawn to G Adventures for their innovative, dynamic and disruptive attitude toward business processes and how as a business they can be transparently successful in sustainable tourism, giving back to the very people and communities that truly are giving travellers real experiences,” said new Managing Director Adrian Piotto.
“I hope to continue the outstanding work that Belinda and the team have done for G Adventures locally and have every person looking at adventure travel to walk into agencies asking to travel with G Adventures.”
“There is a huge amount of potential for growth in our Australia and New Zealand product; the new National Geographic Journeys in particular have an amazing amount of potential.”
Former Managing Director Belinda Ward will be moving to the UK to continue working with G Adventures as Vice President of Industry Sales & Operations.
