Travel Daily - - News -

COR­PO­RATE spe­cial­ist Spencer Travel has nudged its ways into IBISWorlds’s 2017 Top 500 Pri­vate Com­pa­nies list, join­ing more than a dozen other travel, tourism and travel-re­lated in­fra­struc­ture busi­nesses around the coun­try.

Spencer Travel just made the cusp this year, sit­ting at 497th in the an­nual re­port, based on $65m in rev­enue, up 8.3% on last year.

Founder Penny Spencer said sneak­ing into the list was a “thrill”.

“We en­joy an en­vi­able cir­cum­stance of long-term, loyal cus­tomers and staff.

“Mak­ing this list is recog­ni­tion that we’re do­ing things right, and that my team is quite sim­ply the best in the busi­ness,” Spencer said.

The re­port was com­piled by IBISWorld us­ing ASIC-lodged com­pany re­ports, list­ing pub­lic un­listed com­pa­nies, part­ner­ships, as­so­ci­a­tions & pri­vate com­pa­nies.
