For the third edition of our annual Top 25 All Stars salute, we once again set our sights on the industry’s brightest lights — veteran agents with 10 or more years’ experience who generate at least $1,000,000 in annual sales for their agency. In many cases that number is two, three or more times larger. Beyond experience and productivity, these professionals have proven to be skillful, savvy problem solvers and out-of-the-box thinkers, who are strongly devoted to their agency and clients. Outside of the industry, these individuals give their time, talent and treasure to a number of charities and causes.
In most instances, agency managers or owners nominated their pick for the All Star on their team, while several independent professionals made strong cases for inclusion as well. As always, everyone had wonderful stories about tireless dedication and the challenges and triumphs of being a travel agent, making it very difficult for us to select just 25. But we narrowed it down, and here they are — Travel Agent’s 2016 “Top 25 All Stars.”
