Cuvée, an Ultra-luxury experiential villa travel company recruits Michael Snyder to bring the bespoke villa and personalized travel experience to more partners across the globe.
Formerly the Director of Worldwide Sales at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Snyder’s deep investment in building authentic relationships have led him to Cuvée after nearly 20 years in the luxury travel industry. Snyder joins the Cuvée team this month with experience from 120 hotels and resorts in 35 countries coupled with his personal passion for travel.
Starting his career as a bellman — replete with bell jacket and shoulder pads —at the Renaissance Hotel in Boca Raton, Michael Snyder immediately knew that the world of luxury hospitality was exactly where he wanted to be. After completing his bachelor’s degree at Florida Atlantic University, Michael jumped right into working his way up the ladder from bellman to his new role with Cuvée as Director of Sales, Global Partnerships.
At Cuvée, Snyder’s strategy will focus on growing international partnerships within the travel advisor sector. As members of Virtuoso, Cuvée’s travel advisor business has increased significantly as the travel world has evolved with Covid-19, and Michael’s goal will be to deepen and expand those partnerships. In addition, he will develop meaningful relationships within the meetings and incentives space to create retreats and events that take groups out of the boardroom and into more inspiring and productive settings.
“My passion for luxury travel aligns perfectly with Cuvée’s vision and the unprecedented demand for experiential villa travel experiences” says Snyder.
“Our collection of luxury properties and experiences around the world foster much-needed connection and lifelong memories for our clients and partners. Cuvée is leading the charge in this space and I’m thrilled to harness this tremendous opportunity.”
“We are investing significantly in the best possible talent at the moment and Michael is the perfect example of that,” shares Larry Mueller, Founder and CEO of Cuvée.
“We can’t wait to see the effect he has on our strategic partnership strategies, bringing truly unique and highly personalized villa and private home experiences to his network of influential travel advisors and stakeholders in the corporate planning world.”
