Introducing New Staff and Tour Leaders

European Staff at the ExperiencePlus! Headquarters in Italy

A New Face in the U.S. Office:

ExperiencePlus! is very pleased to introduce you to our new Reservations and Sales Associate Jo Baldwin. You will get to know Jo well because she’ll be handling all of your reservation information and asking you for bike measurements and other little details! Jo will also assist in the office with new exciting social media campaigns, sales projects, website modifications, and – of course – walking the office dog, Lyla. Read more about Jo on her staff bio and you’ll see that we didn’t hire her just because her name starts with a “j”! Julie, Joeann (and Maria Elena) are pleased to welcome Jo to the ExperiencePlus! Fort Collins office!

New Tour Leaders in Europe:
There are also a number of new faces leading tours to introduce you to as well as updates from veteran tour leaders that we’ll share over the coming months. We’ll begin with Lisa Merighi and Enrico Dal Monte both from Italy who most recently joined bicycle travelers on the  Cycling the Coast of Sicily tour. We are also pleased to introduce Rick Lankford, who just completed his first ExperiencePlus! trip through the Andalucia region of Spain. Here are a few interesting facts about each of them, you can read more on their staff bios linked below.

Though there is stiff competition amongst our staff Lisa’s year-long, self-supported bicycle tour around Asia makes her the winner of the just created “2011 ExperiencePlus! Self-Supported Bicycle Tour of a Lifetime” award. Read more on Lisa’s bio.

Enrico Dal Monte began leading tours with us in 2010 and though many of our guides speak three or four languages Enrico speaks six which makes him a good candidate to help lead the 2012 ExpeditionPlus! bicycle tour from St. Petersburg, Russia to Istanbul, Turkey.

Rick Lankford is new to ExperiencePlus! but has almost a decade of leading a wide variety of trips under his belt. Find out how a boy from Atlanta, Georgia grows up to live in Granada, Spain – a place he just can’t seem to leave.
