Ultimate Jet Vacations (UJV) has announced several strategic appointments in North America.

“These appointments reflect our dedication to enhancing relationships and elevating service offerings for travel advisors and professionals as we continue our global expansion,” the company wrote in a press release Thursday (May 16).

Andrew Rein has been appointed as director of business development for the Northeast USA and Canada regions.

With a background in prestigious international luxury hotels and resorts, including Mandarin Oriental, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, and the Peninsula Hotel New York, Rein brings a wealth of experience to UJV, the company said.

“His expertise in building meaningful industry relationships and driving revenue growth will be instrumental in further developing our professional offerings,” the company said.

Based in the tri-state area, Rein will be pivotal in nurturing close relationships with our customers in the Northeast region.

Katie Lindblad joins UJV as director of business development for the Southeast region.

Her extensive experience in the African market, including an eight-year tenure at Singita, where she oversaw sales in the United States and Canada, “positions her perfectly to elevate our presence in Africa,” the company said.

“Her dedication to expanding Singita’s presence in key markets and fostering lasting partnerships will be invaluable in her new role at UJV.”

Leading the West Coast as director of business development is Kevin Peyrache, who has been with UJV since 2018.

Originally from Lyon, France, Peyrache brings a decade of experience in the European market and high-end bespoke travel itineraries.

Based in Los Angeles, Kevin will continue to nurture and expand our customer relationships on the West Coast.

Additionally, Simon Jones has transitioned to an internal management role within UJV Africa.

“Simon’s profound understanding of the African market has been a driving force behind the unprecedented success of this region,” the company said.

From UJV HQ, Jones will support the business development team across all markets, building on the strong foundation he established during his client-facing tenure.

“As UJV continues its strategic development and expansion of services for luxury travel advisors, we are delighted to welcome three exceptional leaders who will be instrumental in driving the success and recognition of UJV in the luxury travel industry,” said David Solis, head of business development at UJV, in a statement.

“Their expertise and knowledge will continue to elevate UJV’s presence in the key regions, including Europe and Africa, as well as position the brand as a leading wholesale travel company focused on seamless travel booking process.”

UJV is a concierge-style wholesaler that customizes travel itineraries and packages to 5-Star hotels with commercial airlines and private jets while handling all aspects of trip planning and execution.
