THE GLOBAL CITIZEN BRETT TOLLMAN, CHIEF EXECUTIVE, THE TRAVEL CORPORATION
BLAZING THE TRAIL
As chief executive of family-owned, international travel agency The Travel Corporation, Tollman has his hands full managing the brand’s portfolio of over 40 award-winning guided travel brands, including Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, and luxury cruise operator Uniworld. Incredibly passionate about the sustainability and positive impact of travel, Tollman is also the vice-chairman of the World Travel and Tourism Council and founder of the Treadright Foundation.
Tollman and his team are dedicated to immersive experiences and continual innovation in the ever-growing tourism market. Together with his #Maketravelmatter campaign with Treadright, The Travel Corporation has dedicated itself to reducing the use of single-use plastics on their guided holidays, and will be launching sustainabilityfocused destinations this year. These include the Xigera Safari Lodge in Botswana, which is dedicated to preserving the ecosystem that surrounds it, and 100 Princes Street in Edinburgh, the group’s first Scottish property that is committed to protecting human history.
THE OM FACTOR
“If you take a wooden match out of a box, it’s easy to snap in half; but if you take all of the matches out and keep them together, it’s literally impossible to break them. Similarly, The Travel Corporation relies on our incredibly diverse portfolio to continue to be an industry leader, allowing us to constantly innovate and improve on the current formula.”
