Protravel International reports it will celebrate its longtime employees and agents, including senior vice president Andy Pesky, for their ongoing commitment to the organization with a gala dinner. The event coincides with the 30th anniversary of Protravel.
More than 150 people from across the country will be feted, including Pesky, who will be honored for his service spanning 50 years. The event will be hosted at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City on June 5, 2014.
“In honor of Protravel International’s 30thanniversary as one of the leading luxury travel agencies in the industry, we want to acknowledge the great work of our employees – some of whom have been with us since the beginning. Our illustrious group of honorees will be led by Andy Pesky, who has been and continues to be an incredible asset to the organization since he became part of Protravel,” said Barry Liben, CEO of Protravel International.
“As I’ve stated in the past, Protravel represents a crown jewel, not only within the New York City travel arena, but also throughout the United States and internationally. Andy has had a tremendous hand in that, and we will continue to tap his knowledge and expertise to enable Protravel to maintain its lofty position in the industry," Liben said.
“We would not be at the top of our industry without all of our incredibly loyal employees and agents putting forth a team effort,” stated Pesky. “I relish the challenge of continuing the enormous success we’ve enjoyed at Protravel and I, personally, will continue to strive to make certain Protravel remains a premier agency.”
At the gala, employees will receive awards honoring their commitment and service to Protravel and Protravel’s clients. Many of the invited honorees are celebrating anniversaries of 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 years with Protravel, Protravel said.
