Scott Wiseman
Travel Impressions

A lifelong hospitality executive whose career has spanned both hotel and travel sectors of the industry, Scott Wiseman leverages a uniquely balanced background in sales, marketing, and operations for his responsibilities as President of Travel Impressions. In what is one of North America’s largest and most prominent agent-only, high-end global tour operators, Scott’s deeply ingrained emphasis on customer service—developed throughout decades in leadership roles in hospitality—is one that resonates strongly with the brand and its customers, who value TI for its commitment to its clients.

Scott’s vast range of experience has spanned both multiple decades and responsibilities. Past appointments have included executive positions at various luxury tour operators, his most recent role being President of Cox & Kings, The Americas, whose parent organization’s 250 years of history had made it the world’s most enduring luxury travel brand. Previous to that, Scott served as President of luxury adventure safari provider Abercrombie & Kent USA. Under his stewardship, the company saw product development in over 80 countries, all while ensuring comfort through deep-rooted connections in every destination, which allowed travelers to experience local engagements not available to ordinary travelers.

In the hotel arena, Scott dedicated many years to Accor Group’s North America Business and Leisure division, spending half of his tenure as Vice President, Marketing for Mexico, Canada and the United States under the acclaimed Sofitel, Novotel, and Ibis brands. Here, he developed a rare understanding of property, regional, and corporate operations, while establishing a foundation in hospitality sales and marketing, generating high returns on pricing, and managing multiple distribution channel strategies.

This remarkable medley of experience has made him a valuable board member for the United States Tour Operator Association (USTOA) as well as an in-demand public speaker on matters of the industry. For despite many years in the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry, Scott still retains as much passion for the business as the day he graduated Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management, an education supplemented with successful completion of Cornell University’s Executive Education and University of Maryland College Park’s Leadership Development programs.
