           Collette Vacations Announces Promotion of Seth Fandetti to
                           Director of Online Marketing

          Pawtucket, Rhode Island (June 23, 2009)…Collette Vacations’ President and CEO Daniel
Sullivan, Jr. announced the promotion of Seth Fandetti to Director of Online Marketing. In his
new role, Fandetti will oversee Collette’s website including the development and execution of
online marketing strategies.
          Fandetti’s responsibilities include working with Collette partners such as Smithsonian to
grow the online brand; as well as use emerging social networking platforms and web technology
to increase Collette’s internet presence. Fandetti states that he wishes “to make the company
website more than just a site that sells tours, but one that engages customers with new features
and services that make Collette an industry leader.”
          Fandetti began his employment at Collette, the nation’s oldest and largest tour
operator, in 2000 as Internet Development Coordinator and worked his way up to Senior Web
Developer in the IT department. Prior to coming to Collette, he was an Internet Consultant
serving many small to medium sized companies in developing their web presence.

          "We are happy to welcome Seth back after he briefly left Collette to pursue an
opportunity in Boston where he gained some key management experience,” says Sullivan. “His
experience with the development and management of successful online campaigns will be a
tremendous benefit to Collette’s overall marketing strategies.”

          Fandetti holds a bachelor’s degree from Roger Williams University and resides in
Providence, Rhode Island. He is based at Collette’s corporate headquarters in Pawtucket, Rhode
Island.
