Stacy Fischer-Rosenthal, P ’16
With more than 37 years of luxury travel experience, Stacy Fischer-Rosenthal, President of Fischer Travel Enterprises, has been instrumental in transforming the hospitality industry through her world-renowned, membership only, Travel and Lifestyle company. She has dedicated her career to refining the Fischer Travel brand which was founded by her father Bill Fischer. Being vetted to be a client is the preamble to entrée in which membership requires a $100,000 initiation payment, an annual renewal fee of $25,000 and all applicable service charges. The agency’s standard of incomparable excellence personalized out-of-the-box experiences, and mantra of “making the impossible possible” for their clients has set the bar for the travel industry. As a dynamic and motivated businesswoman, Stacy is involved in all aspects of running the company. Her relationships, leadership, and networking prowess are the heart and soul of Fischer Travel.
Driven by her passion and knowledge, Stacy recently launched Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting. FRC advises hotel owners, developers and management companies on how best to heighten their offerings and services – whether it be by scouting a property, diversifying inventory, or breathing new life into an established landmark. Exceeding expectation is the foundation of this groundbreaking enterprise.
A much sought-after advisor, she currently sits on the Advisory Boards of Aman Hotels, Resorts & Residences, Belmond Hotels & Resorts, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Marriott International Luxury Brands (MILUX), Park Hyatt Hotels, Preferred Hotels & Resorts and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. Her participation in an array of forums has her at the forefront when expertise is sought – recently as a featured lecturer at the Healing Hotels of the World Healing Summit held in Berlin. A devotee of Cornell University, it was a privilege for her to speak on the Women in Hospitality Leadership Panel at the 88th Annual Hotel Ezra Cornell program and to be a featured lecturer at the Cornell University Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series. She recently joined the Advisory Board of the Leland C. and Mary M. Pillsbury Institute for Hospitality Entrepreneurship (PIHE) at Cornell University. LaGuardia Community College has also benefited from her acumen when she participated in their Pathways to Success/Speakers Series. Additional speaking honors have included the American Cancer Society’s Taste of Hope Gala, where she was an award recipient. Other award highlights include the Breast Cancer & Survivorship in the 21st Century honor and most recently The Sass Foundation Lisa Cowan Memorial Award at their 25th Annual Breast/Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day event.
Always ready to lend a helping hand, she is a strong proponent of the premise to “give back.” Stacy, husband Richard and son Max are actively involved with Ramapo for Children, a non-profit organization supporting children with special needs, and City Meals on Wheels. She actively advocates for the NOMI Network, which was founded on the principle of eliminating slavery among all women of the world. An eighteen-year breast cancer survivor, Stacy vigorously champions for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Fischer Travel and Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting are proud to participate in the Cristo Rey Brooklyn High School Corporate Work Study Program and LaGuardia Community College, both of which are devoted to educating and mentoring students in the workplace.
