After working 5 years in our office, Sanne Pieterse will leave Orlando and start working in the San Francisco office by the end of July. She did a great job in helping the Orlando-office grow.
Bob van der Sar will leave Orlando by the beginning of October and head back to the Netherlands to continue his career in the hospitality industry.
Marsha Vink and Merel Nieuwenhuijsen, both Dutch citizens, arrived in Orlando at the end of February 2008. Merel Nieuwenhuijsen speaks and writes German and will take care of our German speaking groups, which are increasing. Not only because of the value of the US dollar, but certainly due to our representation by TCC Marketing in the German speaking market. They have contact with many incentive houses and agencies looking for partners all over the world
On August 4th 2008, Ashley Sawyer will join the Orlando office. She has a Dutch and American passport.
We have had a record first half 2008, from January - June, with more than 60 groups. In the same period of 2007, we had 35 groups.
Thank you for your business over the years and we hope to continue our relationship in the coming years.
With my continued travels on a regular basis to Europe and the rest of the world. If you would like to setup a meeting in your office, call me or write me an e-mail to make an appointment.
