“Having worked closely with every major Canadian travel trade publication over the past 15 years, I am very excited to join Logimonde Media, and in particular to have the opportunity to work daily with this great team to create fresh, relevant and original content that will both inform and entertain,” said Sharpe.

Sharpe has worked within the travel industry for the last 15 years, starting as a writer for a travel trade publication, before moving over to Thomas Cook (now TravelBrands) in various corporate communications roles, and most recently, as director of communications for itravel2000.
