Eduardo Chaillo to Serve as Global General Manager for Latin America

Eduardo Chaillo connects with Maritz Travel Company as global general manager of Latin America. In this role Chaillo will help lead the Maritz Travel Company Global Meetings Network, counsel and support current and future client engagements, and continue his and the company's in-market industry advocacy, education and leadership efforts.

Chaillo, owner of Global Meetings and Tourism Specialists LLC, is an extended team member of Maritz Travel Company - which includes Maritz Travel and Experient. With an extensive and successful background of attracting international business, Chaillo has helped establish model partnerships throughout the industry. A history that incorporates corporate, association and tradeshow buyers and suppliers, Chaillo has been and will continue to be a quintessential linking-pin for Maritz Travel Company clients for creating and delivering exceptional experiences.

"Eduardo's insight into Latin America's many destinations, attractions, cultures and networks will be priceless to Maritz Travel Company's current and future clients," said David Peckinpaugh, president of Maritz Travel Company. "He will be instrumental in helping us further identify, connect and build relationships within both developed and rapidly emerging markets."

Chaillo is joined by two other Maritz Travel Company global general manager colleagues focused on complementary geographic markets: Ping He, a veteran member of Maritz Travel Company, representing Asia Pacific and Ben Goedegebuure, representing European, Middle Eastern and African regions.

Growing destination epicenter

"Latin America continues to quickly evolve and become a growing destination epicenter for both inter-regional and global industry events," said Chaillo. "There is tremendous diversity throughout Latin America; successfully unlocking the full potential value for both regional and global organizations and their guests through the event experience requires an ability to effectively connect locally."

Chaillo will help further lead both Maritz Travel Company and its Global Meetings Network, including professional conference organizers, destination management companies and other key relationships. This will ensure consistent quality in the design and delivery of programs that help transform client organizations and their people through the event experience.

"My past relationships and partnerships with Maritz Travel Company and now global general manager colleagues are a natural fit based upon our shared views, histories and industry passions," Chaillo said. "For me, being able to further help educate, navigate and create unique experiences requires the right mix of talent, collaboration and know-how; together, we have an incredible blend in all of the above."
