At the same time, founder and current president Peggy Goldman will become chairwoman, continuing to work closely with Popper.

Popper came to the company last year when Friendly Planet acquired InsightCuba, where he served as president.

“I have long admired Tom and his efforts to develop a rich tourism program in Cuba,” said Goldman. “He is a consummate traveler who understands the transformative power of the work we do and because of that, is uniquely qualified to lead our company.”
