TORONTO — Royal Caribbean International has named The Travel Agent Next Door as its Partner of the Year for Canada.
The award, presented to only one company each year in recognition of special and unique qualities, comes to The Travel Agent Next Door less than five years of being in service, which company founder Flemming Friisdahl says is a “huge honour”.
He adds: “When we started The Travel Agent Next Door, it was very important that the suppliers were part of everything we do, and this includes being part of the three Ws – Win for our business partners, Win for suppliers and Win for TTAND. I believe this award is a huge testament to our belief that everyone can succeed when working together.”
Lisa Connell, Director of Sales, Canada, Royal Caribbean International, extended her congratulations to Friisdahl and the entire team at The Travel Agent Next Door.
“This award is only presented to one account each year and we always look for something special and unique in an account overall and how they step out to drive business,” she says. “We certainly have seen this over the last few years with what Flemming and his team have created. Flemming has built a platform that delivers and rewards the people – the Advisors! It’s all about our Advisors, Flemming always says, and we couldn’t agree more!”
According to Connell, The Travel Agent Next Door has “taken the independent advisor business and turned it up a notch.” She also applauds Friisdahl for focusing on advisors “who are truly passionate and driven to succeed and paired it with great partnerships.”
