Terri Jo Lennox, CTC, president of Travel Time Inc, and Gary Pollard, CTC, president of Ambassador Tours, have been elected chair and vice chair, respectively, of the Ensemble Travel Group Board of Directors. The two travel executives were elected by their board peers for the one-year term.
Lennox started in the travel industry in 1990 and opened her first agency in Calgary in 1998. Her agency footprint now includes Kelowna, British Columbia and Fort Nelson, British Columbia, in addition to the original location. Lennox’s agency joined Ensemble Travel Group, then GIANTS, in 1998. Her committee involvement includes compensation & review, finance, and Canadian marketing. She served as vice chair of the board of directors last year and takes over from Ross Spalding, outgoing chair, of Crown Cruise Vacations.
Pollard’s agency at Ambassador Tours in San Francisco joined GIANTS in 1969, just one year after the consortium was founded. Pollard took over the reins from his parents as president of Ambassador Tours in 2003. In addition to several committee appointments, Pollard is active in The Travel Institute, currently serving as vice chair of its board of trustees.
