Rock Blanco Retiring from World Travel, Inc. after 30+ years in travel

Exton, PA – October 26, 2021 – It is with great appreciation for all he has done for World Travel, Inc. that we announce the retirement of our Chief Innovation Officer, Rock Blanco, at the end of October.

Rock joined our leadership team back in 2018 with the goal of leading the company’s innovation strategy and driving World Travel’s vision across all technology platforms. It is difficult – if not impossible – to list all the contributions he’s made since becoming our CIO. He was the mastermind behind WorldHub, our central hub that enhances and simplifies the traveler and program manager experience. He was also the driving force behind WorldWatch, our comprehensive real-time disruption and risk assessment solution. His clear vision for the future and passion for inventing have been integral to the development of so many other cutting-edge World Travel technologies.

Rock Blanco’s accomplished career culminates to more than 30 years in the travel industry. Over the years, he’s held senior executive positions in all segments of travel and received countless recognitions for his innovations in travel technology.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to spend the last 3 years of my career working for World Travel alongside such kind, talented, and ambitious people,” said Rock. “As I look forward to retirement, I do so with hope and optimism because I know that this company will continue to do amazing things in the future.”

Congratulations on your well-deserved retirement, Rock! We wish you a wonderful future with lots of time to enjoy with your family, friends, and hobbies.
