President and Chief Executive Officer
In 2013, George Aguel took over at the helm of Visit Orlando after over 20 years working at what might be the city’s most well-known company – Walt Disney World Resorts. While at Disney, he held positions including SVP of Global Corporate Alliances and Operating Participants and SVP of Worldwide Sales and Services for Walt Disney Resorts. Aguel wasn’t completely new to Visit Orlando, though – he previously served on its board of directors and helped developed the three-year strategic plan that the organization is now carrying out.
Aguel has long been known as a major player in the travel industry; he has been named one of the “25 Most Extraordinary Minds in Sales and Marketing” by Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International not once, but twice.
