By: Tenon Tours
The company has been growing steadily, adding 12 new jobs in the state over the last two years. Company executives plan to add at least five more in the next year.
The Delaware headquarters also houses several new executives for the company, including Managing Director Katie Fleming, Director of Operations Ron Metz and Director of Sales Stephanie Macaluso.
The new location has allowed the company to begin working with the University of Delaware's Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management program, creating a pipeline for talented students who are passionate about the travel industry to find meaningful employment after graduation. Currently, five of the 12 positions are held by graduates of the University of Delaware.
President Bryan Lewis said the expansion was a natural extension for Tenon Tours.
"We added a second headquarters in Delaware because our employees are excited to be in the Mid-Atlantic region, and we've been able to find top talent with a passion for travel and personal service," Lewis said. "Our location in Lewes and proximity to Delaware's beaches provides a great work-life balance and allows our team to live and work in the hospitality industry."
