A love of travel turned into a dream come true for Morris Chia 25 years ago with the formation of Travel Professionals International (TPI), a Virtuoso member and Canada’s leading network of independent travel advisors and agencies.
As with any new company, especially in the travel industry, there were plenty of challenges early on, but executive chairman Chia credits a total team effort for making TPI a success.
“It was a lot of work from a lot of people. We looked at different alternatives… worked with advisors and came up with a model that we thought could work in Canada,” said Chia, adding the real “driving force was the love for travel.”
And that love for travel seems to have been key to TPI’s success, in fact, it’s part of the company’s vision: “To build a company of superb, passionate people dedicated to improving the lives of our advisors and together make positive contributions to our world.”
