Wyndham Destinations, vacation ownership and exchange company, announced it would add 140 jobs to its South Orlando call centre operations as part of an expansion to support the ongoing growth of its vacation club business.
The company’s two largest vacation clubs, Club Wyndham and WorldMark by Wyndham, are experiencing strong growth as they expand marketing partnerships with popular consumer brands, driving new interest in their timeshare products.
The company is nearly doubling the size of its leased offices at 8403 South Park Circle to 42,000 square feet, expanding into space previously occupied by other hospitality companies. It is investing USD 4.5 million to upgrade office spaces, add new furniture and invest in technology to provide a comfortable, modern workspace for its growing workforce.
“Orlando is our home, and we continue to invest in our growth here as we look to put the world on vacation,” said Geoff Richards, chief operating officer of Wyndham Vacation Clubs. “The timeshare industry is growing in the US and globally, and because of the concentration of experienced talent in Orlando, this is the right place for us to expand.”
The company is the second largest public company headquartered in Orlando. Wyndham Destinations employs 3,600 people in Central Florida, up from 3,300 at the time it established its headquarters here in June 2018. It has 25,000 employees worldwide.
Since becoming an independent company last year, Wyndham Destinations has unleashed innovation across the organisation to reimagine how travellers vacation.
