Fran Gallagher

Francis X. Gallagher decided to pursue his lifelong dream in 2004 when he launched Global Traveler. A graduate of St. Joseph’s University, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he began his career at Knight Ridder Newspapers, followed by a brief tenure with Cresmer, Woodward, O’Mara & Ormsbee (represented more than 150 daily U.S. newspapers across the country).

He launched Business Traveler and served as the publisher for 17 years (a British-owned, monthly publication), growing the circulation and revenue year after year and taking it from a British rewrite to a true American voice for travelers.

In February 2004, he settled into his true calling — owning and running Global Traveler, the only AAM-audited monthly magazine for the business and luxury traveler. Yardley, Pennsylvania, nestled between New York City and Philadelphia, is home to Global Traveler’s world headquarters. Since its inception in 2004, FXExpress Publications Inc.’s growth has included globaltravelerusa.com, digital newsletters, respected annual surveys and awards, and two sister web publications, trazeetravel.com and whereverfamily.com.

Francis and his wife, Michele, also reside in Yardley, and have two adult children, Nathan and Laura.

He is an avid golfer, playing rounds wherever he touches down worldwide and shares these experiences in Global Traveler’s monthly golf column, often teeing up with key global clients.

Opening an office in Sarasota in 2020 was a challenge but offered the company a footprint further south to closer to even more clients. Gallagher splits his time between these two offices, frequently flying back and forth based on need.

Gallagher frequently travels around the world — from Korea to Los Angeles and from India to Europe. He often settles in the Outer Banks, North Carolina, where he has a second home. He enjoys traveling, playing golf, gardening and spending time with his family.

Sum of Its Parts: Discover the True Pulse of the City in Chicago’s Diverse Neighborhoods

Without visiting, it’d be easy to throw Chicago into any number of categories. Everyone thinks they know Chicago; after all, it’s the third-largest city in America, the most prestigious foodie city in the country, the city of jazz, a comedian’s playground, an architect’s dream, a writer’s paradise. The list goes on. Only when walking the streets themselves do you realize there’s nothing categorical about the Windy City, especially as it continues to evolve.
