Tom Popper


Tom believes that traveling touches a special place in each of us. It’s the discovery of a new destination and the exploration of a different culture, but most of all it’s the interactions with the local people that provide the memories we cherish forever.

A quintessential voyager, Tom’s lived in seven states from the west to east coast and points in between. He’s traveled to more than twenty countries, and has more than two decades of management experience with for-profit and nonprofit organizations nationwide.

Tom became insightCuba’s president in 2002 after visiting Cuba for the first time. “Cuba is an easy place to fall in love with. It has this incredible rhythm and warmth that is so accessible and approachable-- it leaves you wanting more.”, says Tom about a country he easily calls his second home. Under his leadership, insightCuba became the largest provider of people to people travel to Cuba.

Tom has been interviewed by hundreds of newspapers, travel magazines, and has been featured on CNN, NBC, and radio stations nationwide regarding travel to Cuba.

Tom attended George Washington University, University of Colorado, and Pace University.
