“I am extremely proud to accept this award on behalf of our entire team,”said TTAND Founder, Flemming Friisdahl. “This award demonstrates how our philosophy of focusing our agents on certain suppliers has been a win win for everyone involved. We are the only agency in Canada to win this award this year.”

The Sandals CEO Award of Excellence is presented to “individuals, who are described as explorers and visionaries who can perceive of something others can’t, and who move their business forward with a unilateral focus on growth and success.

“Within their respective agencies, they chart the path and create the environment for significant sales growth. They understand that selling Sandals and Beaches means more profits as their sales increase.”

The Travel Agent Next Door also won the “Best of the Best” award for sales growth with the resort group.
