Following on from last month’s article “New Name Same Company”, that Signallia Marketing Distribution SA is the new name for Silverpoint Vacation Solutions SA. One of our regular readers Mr T, has passed on the following information which he has found while doing some of his own research.
Signallia also have a wonderful promotional video which really does sell “The Dream”, showing some exquisite resorts around the world, Just wondering if you can actually get into them? Mr T also points out that Palm Beach Club in Tenerife (a Silverpoint resort) held a presentation last October, this highlighted their “Highly personalized consulting service” given by Maurice Aronow, senior vice-president of Signallia’s commercial department.
Aronow was also a previous vice president of sales and marketing at another Robert Trotta Resort, namely Palmyra Resort & Spa in Jamaica, it was around 2011 that they launched their fractional ownership.
Bob Trotta launched this resort back in 2005, but due to financial problems in 2012 it was never completed. It was alleged that Trotta had defaulted resulting in $110 million worth of debts, with the Jamaican banks putting the resort up for auction, this was unsuccessful.
Our thanks go to Mr T, a regular reader and also a great contributor in doing some of the research we may miss. This again goes to show that doing your due diligence will show some of the links that many of these companies don’t want you to know, the tangled web can be unravelled. Once it begins then you can make a choice, “to trust or not to trust”.
