Kennedy received this same honor in 2008 when TravelAgentCentral.com ran its first survey asking readers to nominate the best supplier sales reps in individual sectors of the travel business.
After a successful survey response in 2008, Travel Agent magazine conducted the same questionnaire this year and received positive and exciting reviews for the top industry suppliers, with over 3,000 responses from readers.
“Sales representatives are such an important part of our business, and it’s great to see that Katy has been recognized for her hard work in going above and beyond to promote Aruba,” said Geraldine Coutinho, area director North America in a written release. “We are very proud to have Katy as part of our team and we’re honored to have a representative from the Boston area receive this award, especially since Boston is one of Aruba’s key markets in the U.S.”
