Caroline Sack Klein is one of two of Ellen’s daughters in the business, and it’s safe to say that barging is in her blood.
Inspired at young age by dinner table conversations revolving around barging, travel, and entrepreneurial pursuits, her fate was sealed to become a Barge Lady. In 2010, this became a reality, and Caroline brought with her nearly 10 years of sales and marketing experience. Caroline quickly became Ellen’s protégé, and was a natural at the art of matching guests to barges. She regularly visits barges in our portfolio, reinforcing the long withstanding relationships that we enjoy with the barge owners.
Another area that Caroline excelled in was modernizing the operations side of the business to take advantage of today’s technology that guests expect. Fresh and energized with ambition, Caroline is excited about the future of the business and industry.
Outside of work, Caroline spends time with her husband and two children, and has a passion for fitness.
“As a protégé of The Barge Lady herself, I try to find a way to make suggestions that will improve our guest’s experience. Whether it is introducing guests to certain barges based on their wish list, or sharing my hotel idea, I want to add value with every interaction.” – Caroline
