The New York Palace Hotel provided the backdrop for Tzell Travel Group’s 16th annual anniversary gala, honoring a select group of the organization’s independent agents and headquarters staff, Tzell reports. On October 11, 2013, over 150 attendees gathered to honor individuals celebrating five-, 10-, 15-, 20-, and 35-year anniversaries with a total of 71 recipients were honored at the gala. In addition, Tzell New England celebrated its 15 year anniversary.
“Similar to how Tzell operates, I think the hard work of our commission agents and house staff needs to be recognized on a “first-class” level. The unparalleled service they provide is why we have continued to be among the very best in the business and why so many of these individuals enjoy such longevity with Tzell,” said Tzell Travel Group CEO Barry Liben.
“It is truly an honor for me to recognize these outstanding individuals. I’m also pleased so many of our agents and staff could attend the gala and celebrate with us, as we highlight their significant contributions to the Tzell Travel Group," Liben said.
"I joined Tzell Travel Group back when there were still rotary telephones. In that time, I’ve been able to learn and grow in my career – Tzell and Barry taught me everything. It’s been a privilege to see the organization develop and continue to uphold their position as the industry leader,” stated Ellen Klein, a Tzell 35-year anniversary recipient. “I’ve maintained my 35-year career with Tzell because I’m proud to be with such a reputable company that values my contribution. Most importantly, I’ve met wonderful people and made a lot of friends over the years at Tzell, including Barry. He’s amazing!”
Tzell said it prides itself in providing its clients with in-depth knowledge, experience and individualized client service with some of the most talented travel agents in the industry.
