TORONTO — Uniglobe Travel (Eastern Canada) past owner and CEO, Frank V. Dennis, passed away Jan. 15, 2022, at the age of 80.
“There are three of us at the office that worked for him for over 25 years and he was not only a great boss, he was also a friend,” Sonia McKeon, Director of Marketing & Supplier Relations, tells Travelweek.
Frank purchased and owned the franchise rights to the Uniglobe Eastern Canada Region from 1991 to 2016, after a successful career in the food industry.
In a statement issued this morning, Uniglobe lauded Frank’s drive, hard work, inspiration and spirit: “He will be missed but never forgotten.”
Frank was instrumental in growing the Uniglobe Eastern Region over the years, and he was the first chair of TICO. His charisma and warm personality made him a well-known and much-loved figure in the industry, from the boardroom to the golf course, where he was a mainstay at the travel industry’s many tournaments.
“He was a true leader,” says McKeon.
Many in the industry are sharing their memories of Frank at Uniglobe Travel (Eastern Canada)’s Facebook page and LinkedIn page.
