The holidays have arrived early at THE RIDE this year as it prepares to launch its fifth spectacular season with a new media rich website and the announcement of an important strategic addition to THE RIDE’s executive suite. After an exhaustive search by DHR International resulting in a rich applicant pool of distinguished industry professionals, THE RIDE is thrilled to announce the selection of Dan Rogoski as its Chief Revenue Officer. THE RIDE is welcoming Dan aboard with an exclusive interview by THE RIDE, itself:
THE RIDE: Dan, welcome aboard THE RIDE! The team and I are thrilled to be plotting the future with you at the wheel. We were impressed and flattered by the distinguished array of applicants. However, as a still youthful business plan, everyone at THE RIDE has an eye on executing toward national and global expansion of THE RIDE brand and mastering each of the many steps along the way. What is there in THE RIDE’s emerging vision of entrepreneurial growth that attracted you from your professional history to date of managing more established attractions?
DAN ROGOSKI: To me, THE RIDE is the ultimate New York City experience. There is no other attraction, tour or sightseeing option that totally immerses you in an interactive experience with the whole city as a backdrop, where YOU become part of the show! The first time I took THE RIDE, I had no idea what to expect, but as soon as we departed I knew this would be a very different and unique experience. Every person who was onboard with me had smiles on their faces the entire time, and it was at that point that I knew this was the perfect fit for me! Reading through all of the amazing 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor, Viator and similar consumer feedback platforms, it reaffirmed what I had just experienced and really energized me during the interview process to prove why I deserved to be a part of this team.
THE RIDE: Thanks, Dan, for your kind words about me! THE RIDE team and I are pleased that you saw this as a career opportunity.
DAN ROGOSKI: The opportunity to join THE RIDE, specifically in a significant senior role, was really about leading the revenue generating efforts of a business that has a robust growth plan. I have always had the entrepreneurial spirit and I knew by becoming part of this team, I was on track to realizing my goals and ambitions of helping to build a business that eventually becomes an iconic, global brand. With the global plan ready to develop, the opportunity to work with partners/operators, who appreciate the production level of this type of business, and also working along side those same partners/operators who want to take this “ride” with us, initially here in NY, but eventually into every city we expand to, are the reasons why THE RDE is destined to do great things. Whether you have a student or senior group, work with FIT’s or are looking to organize a bespoke once in a lifetime corporate event or team building experience, THE RIDE is the answer! We are so sure that everyone will thoroughly enjoy their experience with us, that we will soon be announcing our new “ Smile Back Guarantee” program. Watch this space for further details in the coming weeks.
THE RIDE: We will keep our readers focused on your benchmarks as you bring THE RIDE to new heights of audience growth. Now welcome aboard and get to work!
DAN ROGOSKI: I am extremely happy and proud to be a part of an exciting team of hard working, passionate professionals, and look forward to offering my support to help make THE RIDE the most exciting compelling value proposition for all of our customers!
