TORONTO — The Travel Agent Next Door agent partner Ola Ulewicz of Jet Lag Voyages was recently recognized with the New Business Award at the Barrie Chamber of Commerce Business Awards Gala.
The award goes to a business having the greatest impact on the community and economy as a whole over the last 12 months, as demonstrated by achievements in company growth, sales, employment, client acquisition and awareness.
Businesses must provide their sales range, company overview, value proposition, key achievements, future goals, community involvement and letters of reference. Once nominated, they had to do a video summary.
The winners were selected by a panel of judges who were leaders of Ontario Wide Chambers of commerce. Jet Lag Voyages was one of three qualifying businesses and ultimately took top honours.
“Without TTAND being such an incredible host and support system, my vision would have never really come together and I’m thankful for Flemming Friisdahl, Penny Martin and the whole TTAND team,” said Ulewicz.
“We are extremely proud to be supporting Ola and her team. She has shown great initiative in starting her own agency and has been recognized as a Best New Business in her community,” said TTAND founder, Flemming Friisdahl.
Ulewicz’s agency held its grand opening in April 2022.
