G Adventures.

The former The Travel Corporation (TTC) employee has been named the new Managing Director for the company in Australia and New Zealand, replacing outgoing boss Belinda Ward who was promoted to Vice President of Industry Sales & Operations and will be based in the UK.

With over 19 years industry experience, including General Manager of Busabout, G Adventures says Piotto brings “outstanding business acumen to the role” and expects he’ll be the “perfect person” to lead to company in its next phase of growth down under.

Piotto said he was drawn to G Adventures because of its “innovative, dynamic and disruptive attitude”, which contributes to the company’s growth amongst Australian travellers.

“As a business they can be transparently successful in sustainable tourism, giving back to the very people and communities that truly are giving travellers real experiences,” he said.

“I hope to continue the outstanding work that Belinda and the team have done for G Adventures locally and have every person looking at adventure travel to walk into agencies asking to travel with G Adventures.”
