Signature Travel Network has named Phil Cappelli senior vice president of preferred partnerships.

Cappelli has worked in the industry for more than 20 years, most recently as president of Insight Vacations USA. Before that, Cappelli was Tauck's director of North American sales.

He will lead Signature's preferred partnership portfolios, which include hotels/resorts, cruise lines and destinations.

Cappelli's appointment is part of a restructuring of the travel agency consortium's marketing and preferred-partnership departments. 

As part of that restructuring, Karryn Christopher, previously senior vice president of sales and marketing, was promoted to executive vice president of marketing and preferred partnerships. 

Christine Conklin, previously director of e-marketing and digital media, was promoted to vice president of marketing. 

Nicole Gonzales, previously director of sales and marketing, was promoted to senior director of sales and marketing.
