American Express Travel awarded 27 of its top performing representative agencies with the Representative Excellence Award and an exclusive Kenyan safari with its preferred partner, Micato Safaris. The winners were recognized based on their 2012 sales performance and commitment to clients with high standards of service and experience.
“We were so pleased to recognize these dedicated agencies for their outstanding participation within our network,” said Tony Gonchar, vice president of American Express Travel Representative Network. “The 27 agencies selected have shown unparalleled service, expertise and professionalism in their support of customer travel experiences.”
The six-day trip included a three-day safari at the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, local excursions, a tour of an animal orphanage and sightseeing in a hot air balloon. Between the explorations, the participants were taken to tour the AmericaShare facilities and met with the program’s orphaned and disadvantaged students.
