Leadership – Janalyn Theodosiou

With 20 years of experience, Janalyn Theodosiou is the founder of SAND Travel PR and a seasoned professional in the luxury travel marketing and public relations industry, beginning her career in Cape Town, South Africa at the Cape Grace Hotel and moving on to New York  City to work with beloved properties including The Lancaster, Cotton House and Le Toiny within the Grace Leo hotel collection, Island Outpost hotels in Miami and Jamaica, La Casa Que Canta in Mexico, and Skibo Castle in Scotland to name a few.

An American born in Zimbabwe, and having lived, studied and worked between the United States, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Spain and China, Janalyn has become a definitive global insider with a deep understanding of the ever-changing and intricate travel industry.

In December 2018, Janalyn stepped out of her position at Singita where she worked for almost a decade; seven years as Marketing Manager and then 2 years as Public Relations Manager.  As a result of experiencing an array of important conservation activities on the go over the years, and meeting of an impressive collection of visionaries and philanthropists committed to the protection of the continent, SAND Travel was created to be a mouth piece for the needed narrative of these amazing efforts.
