Greg recently joined Northstar Travel Group and their Meetings team as the new International Event Sales Director. Greg is responsible for the overall growth and development of Northstar’s Meeting Group series of events that take place around the world.

When Greg is not on the road, he can be found in his midtown Manhattan office which is decorated in native Cleveland, Ohio memorabilia. Outside of the hospitality and tourism world, Greg tries to remain as active as possible by running around central park, practicing his golf swing, and perfecting his jump shot! Greg also serves on the board of the Young Professional Leadership Committee for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. A graduate of the University of Lugano in Switzerland with a master’s degree in International Tourism, Byrnes is always eager to tackle the next challenges facing the meetings and incentive travel industry.
