He will report directly to Chief Operating Officer, Brad Bourland.
“Cory brings deep industry knowledge and extensive experience in leading and coaching sales teams,” said Bourland. “His exceptional reputation and experience in the hospitality industry is a great addition to our talented executive team and we are excited to welcome him to Virtuoso.”
