Insight Vacations Appoints Kristina Miranda as New Director of National and Key Accounts


RYE, N.Y., Jan. 12, 2018 – Insight Vacations® is pleased to welcome Kristina Miranda as a new Director of National and Key Accounts for Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold. She joins Janet Anderson and Richard Sims in managing all aspects of National Accounts for the two brands. One of her main responsibilities will be to grow and develop Insight and Luxury Gold’s new preferred relationship with Virtuoso.


Miranda will be based in Sherman Oaks, California, and will report to Phil Cappelli, the president of Insight and Luxury Gold, starting January 29th.


We are incredibly excited to have Kristina join Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold,” said Cappelli. “Her years of experience in the industry and previous success managing national accounts make her a great asset to our team. She understands the importance of relationships in our business, and I’m looking forward to watching her take our partnerships to the next level and deepen our support of our agency network.”


A 2000 graduate of the University of San Diego, where she studied business administration, Miranda spent the last five-and-a-half years at AmaWaterways. In her most recent role as Director of National Accounts, she managed business strategy and relationships with top consortia and key accounts, grew sales, and developed new business. Prior to that she was a Group Specialist/Account Manager, and a River Cruise Specialist. Before joining AmaWaterways, Miranda was the Director of Events and Operations for a catering and event planning firm in San Diego.


“It’s an honor to become part of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold and The Travel Corporation family,” Miranda said. “I look forward to building an even stronger relationship with our current partners and developing new relationships with newly preferred partners to ensure our brands are always top of mind with the travel agency community.”


In her spare time, Miranda loves traveling the world, cooking, hiking, walking with her two shih tzus, and Fantasy Football. She is a huge NFL fan, with the LA Chargers being her favorite team.
