National Travel Agency Network Recognizes Excellence in Sales among Managers and Agents Wesley Chapel, FL (September 15, 2006)—Today

Today, during a ceremony held at the 2006 Carlson Wagonlit Travel National Meeting, America's leading retail travel agency powerhouse named the two recipients of its "Top Achiever" awards for excellence in sales: Janice Eagle of Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Benton Harbor, MI; and Nancy Francke of Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Middleton, WI. The 2006 Carlson Wagonlit Travel National Meeting is being held through tomorrow at the Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, FL (outside of Tampa).

Janice Engle serves as a manager in the Benton Harbor Carlson Wagonlit Travel location owned by Associate Kevin Geiser. "Janice is respected by clients and all of Kevin's employees as a focused, energetic individual," noted Roger E. Block, CTC, executive vice president of the Carlson Wagonlit Travel Associate Division, which includes over 600 Associate (franchised) locations nationally. "She demonstrates equal attention and enthusiasm with all of her clients, ranging from a Fortune 100 company executive vice president who may be chartering a sailboat in the Greek Isles to a summer migrant worker who comes into the office on a weekend to purchase an airline ticket. She is known for being available to serve as well as for being proactive in her willingness to share ideas, travel experience and education." Nancy Francke serves as an agent in the Middleton Carlson Wagonlit Travel location owned by Mary Miller and Pam Wencel. "Nancy has the qualities you desire in a top travel professional," stated Block. "She is a twelve-year veteran of the agency and always one of its top agents, selling at least $850,000 in leisure travel annually. Her quest for assisting customers has also driven her quest for seeking continuing education opportunities. In fact, she has not only become a certified specialist in five destinations, but she's also successfully completed the Certified Travel Counselor (CTC) program through The Travel Institute and is a Master Cruise Counselor through the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)."
