There’s something about returning to where it all began, and that’s just what Collette did last week as it celebrated its 25th year in Canada with a special reception at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto, reports assistant editor, Greg Coates in this week’s digital edition of Travel Courier.
The family run, US-based company expanded its operations into Canada in 1989, opening an office in the basement of the Royal York. They now have a Canadian team – led by general manager Brett Walker – of more than 30 staff, with nine sales representatives covering Canada from coast to coast.
On hand for the celebrations was Dan Sullivan, Jr., Collette CEO and president, who told Travel Courier that Canada was always on the company’s radar and an important part of the Collette family.
“We’ve been running tours to Canada since the ’20s and opened our first office here 25 years ago,” he said. “Canada has been a big part [of our business] and very successful, both inbound and outbound.”
