Air Canada Vacations has appointed Federico Berardinucci as manager, national sales, at the Mississauga office.
Berardinucci joins the Air Canada family with over 15 years of experience in the car rental, travel insurance and airline business. With Manulife Travel Insurance, he spent much of his time on the road visiting, training and working with clients to help boost overall sales.
In his last role at Porter Airlines, he built relationships with multiple clients and provided solutions on how to move market shares to the company. His experience has made him well known in the industry.
Berardinucci will report directly to Monique Lalonde, who was recently appointed to general manager, sales and national accounts for Ontario. Lalonde joined Air Canada Vacations six years ago and has been a valued member of the Air Canada Vacations team. She is responsible for planning, developing and leading all national accounts as well as managing the growth of the Ontario market. Reporting to Lalonde are Carolina Suarez, Dianne Pedroso, Heidi Schnitker, Krista Cardona and Tyler Mattioli.
Air Canada Vacations would also like to highlight Christine Faulkner’s recent appointment to the role of manager, inside sales and planning. Faulkner joined Air Canada Vacations two years ago and is now responsible for managing all inside sales and planning activities nationally, as well as a team of six. Both Lalonde and Faulkner report directly to George Platanitis, vice president, sales and partnerships.
