Delta Vacations has named Jennie Ho as president. The move, effective immediately, fills the role previously held by John Caldwell, who was recently named vice president of Delta’s Seattle branch. Ho previously served as the managing director of Specialty and Canada Sales, where she led a team of 70+ employees and delivered approximately $4 billion in annual Delta and JV revenue. Ho began her career at Delta in 1998 and has since held numerous leadership positions at the company.

“As President – Delta Vacations, Jennie will bring her well-rounded commercial background, strategic focus and leadership to carry forward Delta Vacations’ momentum in the market. Her demonstrated ability to deliver results combined with her commitment to talent development positions her to successfully lead the organization,” Bob Somers, Delta’s senior vice president of Global Sales said in an internal memo to colleagues.

Delta Vacations’ senior vice president Tina Iglio will move to Delta Air Lines as managing director of Global Sales Support, effective in April. Iglio has been responsible for the development of strategy, product development, pricing and marketing of B2C and B2B packages. In her new role, she’ll lead the Global Sales Support team, which provides support to field sellers and corporate and agency customers.
