It all began when Richard Branson hit Bobby Genovese over the head. Metaphorically, of course.
“I had all these incredible residences that I owned that I just don’t get to visit anymore,” says Genovese, chairman of BG Capital Group Limited, which in 2013 came out with the BG Signature Luxury Retreat Collection. “And having spent some time with Richard Branson, he sort of hit me over the head and said, ‘Well, why don’t you do what I do?’ And that’s how BG Signature came about.”
It works perfectly for Genovese, who just likes to show people a good time. An adventure enthusiast himself who finds his rush exploring different corners of the world (and anywhere that happens to have a polo field), the entrepreneur and business mogul has established his ideal hobby in BG Signature Collection.
“I really enjoy creating incredible experiences of holidays for people,” says Genovese, who’s talking from the BG Signature flagship location, an equestrian resort in Ocala, Fla. This particular property is a real-life fantasy for any active vacationer, located adjacent to the Florida Horse Park and backing onto the world-famous Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, a 177-kilometre-long trail that connects one side of the state to the other.
With the goal of adding one property to BG Signature’s roster every one to two years, Genovese couldn’t be happier with the way the company is already spreading his fun-loving energy to fellow travelers seeking unique destinations all over the world. When asked if he has his eye on any potentials right now, he says he does — and we’ll just have to wait and see what and where they turn out to be. For now, travelers can whet their adventure palates by perusing the BG Signature website, which gives a detailed overview of each property. From there, Genovese says, the renting process is simple as can be: just call or email BG Signature with the location you’ve fallen for, and shortly after your escape will be booked.
