Nexion reports the recipients of its Circle of Excellence, MillionAir, and Ambassador Awards for 2013. Recipients were honored at a ceremony during Nexion’s annual CoNexion conference, held at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, September 26-28, 2013. Nexion said a record number of its agents were recognized this year, including 28 agents with over $1 million in airline sales.
A total of 42 agents were honored with Nexion’s Circle of Excellence award, recognizing top producers who achieved set goals for selling cruise and tour vacations using Nexion’s preferred supplier partners. In addition, Nexion presented 28 agents with its MillionAir award, recognizing individual achievements of over $1 million in airline sales over the course of the previous year. Receiving both the Circle of Excellence and MillionAir awards were Steve Lincoln from Bridgewater, Virginia, and Samantha Khalil from Palm Bay, Florida.
“It’s a privilege for me – along with the entire Nexion team – to formally recognize the hard work and dedication of our award-winning agents,” said Nexion President Jackie Friedman. “The fact that we have a record number of agent award winners this year – including nine additional MillionAir award winners – confirms that the ongoing commitment Nexion has made to education, training, and industry-leading resources is helping our agents achieve higher levels of business success."
“Being honored with Nexion’s MillionAir award was both a professional and personal accomplishment. Having been in the travel industry for only two years, I am able to achieve the level of success that I have through the programs that Nexion provides their agents. Nexion’s programs allow me to market my agency in a way that sets me apart from other agencies and offer a product with a substantial cost saving to my clients,” said Joseph McNamara of Palm Beach, Florida.
In addition to its Circle of Excellence and MillionAir award winners, Nexion also honored Ester Herz of East Wenatchee, Washington, and Alicia Steuart of Carnival with its Ambassador Award. Herz was honored for her work with Nexion Town, an online agent-driven social networking community, and her commitment to educate other travel agents on the value of being a Nexion member.
For only the second time in Nexion’s history, a supplier has also been honored with a Nexion Ambassador Award. Steuart, director of home based partnerships for Carnival, was recognized for her excellence and dedication to Nexion, both the company and its agents, and her willingness to assist agents in growing their business.
In addition to the recognition at CoNexion, each of these award winners also receives an all-expense paid trip courtesy of Nexion, Funjet Vacations, Palace Resorts and Lomas Travel. This year’s retreat will be at the Moon Palace in Cancun, Mexico, from December 7 - 10, 2013.
