Former sales and marketing vice president at Pandaw River Cruises Marco Rosa has set-up his own representation company.

Plateau International will offer sales, marketing, PR and consultancy to luxury and boutique hotels, cruise lines, train companies, tour operators, tourist boards, destination management companies in the UK, Europe and Australasia.

The team is made up of six staff including Rosa which have 25 years’ experience working in the travel sector.

Rosa has previously worked at Carnival Corporation, Belmond/Orient Express, Abercrombie & Kent and the Emirates Group.

He left his job at Pandaw at the end of August having worked at the company for two years.

Rosa said: “We have the experience of working with well-known, luxury brands and have learned a lot about the quality and attention to detail they provide. This experience, combined with our non-corporate, personalised and customer-dedicated approach is great news for our partners.”
