Ashish Sanghrajka, the president of Big Five Tours and Expeditions, has been appointed Director of Industry Relations on the board of directors for Millennials in Travel.
Through this volunteer based role, the Kenyan native will consult with industry organizations about the next generation of travelers and their expectations.
"It's no surprise that Millennials account for a record-high percentage of business and leisure travelers today, and the number only continues to grow," says Sanghrajka. "I'm thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful organization, and believe that Millennials are truly shaping the travel industry with a new vision for the future".
Millennials in Travel acts as a career development and networking organization for Millennials - those young professionals born after 1975 – from all aspects of the travel industry. Barely a year old, the company consists of 2000 members, across a dozen chapters located nationwide.
'Millennials in Travel instills in its members a passionate, committed relationship to the future of the travel industry, both in professional and social work environments. Sanghrajka shares that spirit and envisions a travel industry that embraces the needs and interests of this growing segment of travelers', said Joshua Smith, Director of Strategic Development for the group.
