Jeff Gayduk


Jeff Gayduk launched Premier 22 years ago with a vision of how to better connect buyers and sellers in the b2b travel industry. Under his leadership, what started as one print magazine has organically grown over the past two decades to include six unique vertical market properties (sports events, student travel, family reunions, international inbound, film production and leisure group travel) and nearly two dozen custom publishing arrangements with associations and destination marketing organizations. In his free time, Jeff enjoys competitive bike racing and coaching youth sports.
