Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold USA Appoints New Vice President of Sales

Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold have announced the appointment of a new vice president of sales, Kristina Miranda.

Miranda has been promoted from her previous role as director of national and key accounts. One of her main responsibilities as director of national and key accounts was to grow and develop Insight and Luxury Gold’s new preferred relationship with Virtuoso.

“We are very excited to promote Kristina to the role of vice president. She brings a stellar reputation in the industry in the premium and luxury travel space,” said Jon Grutzner, president of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold USA. 

Prior to her role at Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, Kristina spent five and a half years at AmaWaterways as director of national accounts. And before that, she was group specialist/account manager and a river cruise specialist.

In her new role, Kristina will manage all aspects of national accounts for Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold. She will continue to manage business strategies, grow relationships, inspire the sales team, and develop new business.

 “She possesses both strong analytical skills and a friendly personality that will serve her well in this leadership role,” said Grutzner. “We believe both our travel partners and sales team will benefit having her in the elevated role.”
