Gabriele Finocchio

Born in Messina in 1983 and graduated in Tourism in Messina in 2006, tourism and travel have always been my favorite topics.

Thanks to my parents, Carmelo e Lina, Sicily and Italy (but not only) are in my pocket after many trips that helped me to discover and to love my “unique” country.

After 8 years spent in Taormina (Sicily), US, Trieste and Milan at Armani Hotels & Resorts I understood that Tourism is my future.

My present is at Mutika EMC for more exciting adventures, more experiences and for a smiling future.

Kelsey Nicol

Kelsey joined the Mutika team in September 2019 after 15 years within the third-party market.  In her previous experience, it was important for her to have a well-rounded understanding of event management.  She began her career in operations and then moved to presale, account management and ending with business development.  This variety of experience was in six continents and enriches the ideas and experiences she has to offer.

Kelsey is based in Des Moines, IA and responsible for strategic customer acquisitions and marketing development within the USA and Canada. Being based in the U.S. allows her to be available to Mutika clients and talk through a program’s intricate details having been on the client side and understanding the importance of listening to a customer’s needs.  

She builds partnerships as an experience leader and drives event program improvement through her passion to create authentic, emotional experiences for customers.  Kelsey believes you are only as good as the last program you operated and supports the Mutika team on reimagining today’s client and participant journey through understanding the lifestyle of travelers.  

Favorite Travel Memory:  The first time my husband and I experienced the Amalfi Coast. It was the #1 item on my bucket list and lived up to everything I dreamed it would be and more.
