He comments; “I am delighted to have won this prestigious award as it’s great to be recognised for the service I provide and the job I love doing. The category of Specialised Service was the most contested of all 14 categories on the night and I was announced the winner on my first attempt, against businesses that had been nominated 6 years running, which is just fantastic for me and reinforces that I made the right decision joining the company. The support I receive is second to none and allows me to focus on what I love and do best – selling travel to my customers and making their travel dreams come true.”
