How I Got Here is a weekly podcast from PhocusWire and Mozio, getting the inside stories behind innovation and startups in travel and transportation.
Brett Tollman became CEO of The Travel Corporation in 2000, overseeing a family business and one of the oldest groups of companies in the travel industry, as he explains to Mozio's David Litwak and Kevin May of PhocusWire.
Stepping into the hot seat of a family-run business that has been operating since the 1920s must be a fairly daunting task.
That's what happened to Brett Tollman in 2000 when he became CEO of The Travel Corporation - one of the oldest groups of companies in the travel industry.
The business remains privately-owned and now operates in over 70 countries, with over 40 offices and more than 10,000 employees.
The Travel Corporation operates 29 brands including specialists in guided holidays, luxury river-cruising, youth travel and sightseeing specialists, as well as the luxury boutique chain, Red Carnation Hotel Collection.
Tollman is also vice chairman of the World Travel and Tourism Council and creator and director of The Treadright Foundation, a non-profit organization that looks to bring about sustainable initiatives in the industry.
He joins us as the latest guest on How I Got Here.
