Alexander has an uncanny ability to expertly pair clients with one of her hundreds of employees, but she does more than manage. She loves talking to travelers—both long-standing and potential clients—about the details of their trips. She’s also constantly on the road, often taking detours from business trips to visit up-and-coming destinations. After a recent visit to Argentina, she spent three days in Rio de Janeiro to check in on the pre-Olympics progress; on her way back from an Amazon cruise, she stopped in Panama City. “It’s important to be an active participant in the industry you’re promoting,” she says. “Wanderlust has never left me.”

Excited About: “Everything old is new again,” Alexander says. Europe bookings are the strongest she has seen in years, and not only to Italy and other popular Western European countries: Eastern Europe—especially Croatia, Montenegro, and Hungary—are resurgent among luxury travelers.
