Travel industry leader celebrates 2012 successes by honoring employees, business partners.
Montrose Travel, a $160-plus million full-service travel and host Travel Management Company, celebrated the close of a successful 2012 by honoring associates and business partners at its annual Year-End Holiday Awards Party.
The event, held Dec. 1 at the Oakmont Country Club, hosted over 300 associates, independent contractors and business partners for a night of great food, live entertainment and awards honoring those who play key roles in the company’s continued success.
With 56 years in business, Montrose Travel grew from 14 employees in 1990 to more than 150 today with over 500 home-based travel agents.
“The consistent growth of the company has always depended on the quality of the relationship with our customers,” said Montrose Travel president Joe McClure. “For this reason, we honor the individuals and businesses that help us serve them.”
Montrose Travel announced that the annual Business and Supplier Partners of the Year was awarded to PSCU, the nation’s leading credit union service organization providing traditional and online financial services to over 1,500 financial institutions and 680 credit unions nationwide.
“Montrose Travel has, in large part, become what it is today because of its association with credit unions and a number of financial institutions as their exclusive travel provider,” explained McClure. Accepting the award on PSCU’s behalf was Annie Cox, director of Loyalty Solutions.
The company’s 2012 Supplier Partner of the Year award was given to Royal Caribbean International, recently named Best Cruise Line Overall by Travel Weekly readers for the 10th consecutive year.
“Royal Caribbean has been a consistently strong supplier partner with Montrose Travel and has worked hand-in-hand with us to provide our customers with a world-class vacation experience.” said McClure. Randy Raudt, Royal Caribbean’s West Sales Region Business Development manager, accepted the award.
The evening concluded with cocktails and dancing.
