About Daniele Zanetti
I’m a young, or at least I like to think so, professional with close to 10 years of experience in the Travel Industry.
I was born and grew up in Italy, the most beautiful and diverse country one could visit. Yes I said it. ?
As beautiful as it is, although, I decided to migrate only a few days after graduating as a translator and interpreter at the University of Venice.
After almost 9yrs in Australia and a short experience in the travel industry in Italy, I started working as a tour guide in Sydney (!!) and grew within the company which I then managed for 2yrs.
I joined the amazing APTMS team in early 2015, a lot of learning – which has never stopped – and good successes have brought me to managing the sales team in Australia and New Zealand. We have grown constantly, representing more and more suppliers and extending our focus from USA and Hawaii to recently Europe and Southeast Asia.
The upcoming daily challenges within the industry are what keeps me motivated, but nonetheless I also enjoy the few perks the industry offers to us who work behind the scenes!
