Stacy, had devoted her career to transforming and growing Fischer Travel Enterprises, a membership-only travel, and lifestyle company that was founded by her father, Bill Fischer. Now, as president of the company, she has more than 37 years of experience working with high-end clientele in the luxury travel sector. Fischer-Rosenthal’s career path went in a new direction, however, after she took a class through Goldman Sachs called 10,000 Small Businesses. She was inspired to create a business of her own. Drawing on the expertise and knowledge she gained from working in the luxury travel industry with high-end, niche clients for a long period of time, Fischer-Rosenthal recently launched Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting. The company advises hotel owners, developers, and management companies on how to strengthen their offerings and services—whether by scouting a property, diversifying inventory, or breathing new life into an established landmark. Fischer-Rosenthal says that her favorite part about running her business is that she gets to create incredibly memorable experiences for people that will last a lifetime.
Francesco is a reference when it comes to ideas about innovation, sustainability, entrepreneurship, and market trends. Aqua Expeditions began with the launch of three Aqua Expeditions river cruise vessels, the Aqua Amazon and Aria Amazon in 2008 and 2011 respectively in the Peruvian Amazon, followed by an expansion in Southeast Asia – Cambodia and Vietnam with the Aqua Mekong in 2014. In 2019, Francesco announced the continued global expansion of Aqua Expeditions with two new vessels and three new destinations. Aqua Blu, the cruise line’s first-ever oceangoing explorer yacht will explore three new coastal destinations of East Indonesia, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Komodo National Park from November 2019. In the process, Galli Zugaro has cultivated a brand that exemplifies his attention to detail and desire to personalize an immersive luxury cruise experience by pairing iconic boutique five-star vessels with “soft adventures”. Aqua Expeditions has received international acclaim, including the Gold Award in the Architecture/New Build category in the 2015 Asia Hotel Design Awards for the Aqua Mekong. VIP guests to have cruised on an Aqua vessel include leading travel journalists from Travel + Leisure, Financial Times, Conde Nast Traveller, Forbes, and Robb Report.
