Team Spotlight: Adrienne

Our next team spotlight features account executive Adrienne Gates. Adrienne is one of our newest account executives with more than two years of travel-specific sales experience. Prior to working with Advance Travel & Tourism, Adrienne was in the agency world where she also had the ability to work with travel clients.

From Robertsdale AL, Adrienne moved north to Birmingham before eventually settling in Mobile. Her favorite thing about working in tourism?

“Hands down, the people!” said Gates. “Everyone in the tourism industry is so friendly and great to work with. I also love that we’re helping our partners’ communities by driving tourism and visitation – and helping visitors discover new, fun destinations.”

Adrienne’s favorite place to visit is the Florida Keys because she’s a beach bum at heart and loves how laid back everyone is there. Let’s not forget how good the food is also!

Outside of work, Adrienne loves spending time on the water, and with her close proximity to the beach, Adrienne and her fiancé find themselves spending as much time as possible with their toes in the sand. She also enjoys painting and watching history documentaries with her fiancé and their pets.

Adrienne owns the Gulf Coast territory in Louisiana, Alabama and Florida. We are excited to see her thrive in her new role!
