Ensemble Announces Enhanced and Expedited Profit Sharing

Fulfilling its commitment to enhance earning potential for members, Ensemble has announced that it is delivering profit sharing from 2022. Ensemble is also providing those payments faster by increasing the amount of the first payment by 50 percent. (While the disbursal will still be made in two installments, members will receive three quarters of the payout in the first payment.)

Adding to the increased benefit is that 73 percent of Ensemble’s top-performing members will earn a higher percentage of sales than they did in 2019.  

“It’s truly gratifying to see the tangible results of the promises we made to members prior to the acquisition—including the commitment to provide profit sharing from year one,” added David Harris, executive chairman of Ensemble. “This payout is a reflection of the faith and commitment that our members put in us to deliver on the assurances we made to rebuild the consortium while simultaneously helping them grow their businesses.” 

Over the past several months, Ensemble’s leadership has been laser focused on the rebuilding and "reimagining" of the consortium with a focus on maximizing profitability for members. Key to achieving that goal was the onboarding of members—which has surpassed 2,000—onto ADX (Agent Digital Experience), its proprietary booking platform that enables advisors to book all aspects of a client's trip and invoice in the same platform, as well as delivering on its promise to increase and maximize commissions.   

Several new innovative programs have also been launched, including the introduction of new hotel and marketing programs; new branding including logos and a series of branded annual events; a new FAM program, Further Your World; new print and digital publications including the launch of Range, a monthly digital magazine, and Range Best, which includes ideas and preferred partner offerings and promotions. Ensemble also launched a new and enhanced DMC program offering myriad benefits for partners ranging from access to co-op marketing opportunities to opportunities to participate in Ensemble’s events to meet with members in person. The rebuilding of Ensemble has also focused on making significant investment in expanding the core team with several new positions in operations, partner and member relations, marketing and technology.
