To Serve You Better

Trafalgar, Costsaver, Brendan Vacations Reorganize Canadian Sales Team

Trafalgar, Costsaver and Brendan Vacations Canada have reorganized their Canadian sales team.

As the travel industry enters the recovery phase and adapts to the new world of travel, the sales team’s roles are being further enhanced as Business Development Managers (BDMs) for the brands across the country.

With the recent launch of Brendan Vacations in Canada, the BDMs will strategically assist loyal travel agents and their clients from coast-to-coast while representing all three brands.

They will also continue to deliver one-on-one support to develop and implement sales and marketing plans, grow sales and businesses and to serve their loyal Canadian travel agent community across the country, with no region or territory missed.

Anita Emilio, vice president of sales for Trafalgar, Costsaver and Brendan Vacations Canada, said that: “As we all work together to restart the travel industry, this transition was designed to better serve the travel community as a whole and ensure travel agents receive nationwide support now that we are managing our three outstanding travel brands.”

Emilio continued: “Our dedicated team of BDMs have extensive travel industry experience, and we are confident they will be a tremendous asset to our Canadian travel agents in their new territories. Ready to inspire and support travel agents and partners, our BDMs are here to help kickstart businesses and grow 2021 sales nationwide together.”
