Paul Metselaar knows a thing or two about corporate travel. He also knows how to steer his business through difficult times.

Created in 1984, Ovation Travel Group remains an independently owned company with 700 employees and over 200 travel advisors.

It currently works with 700 businesses on plans for over 300,000 travelers a year.

Metselaar has managed to operate the company alongside the so-called giants of the travel management world and push through major downturns following the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001 and the global economic crisis.

He joins us for the latest episode of How I Got Here.

HIGH is a weekly show produced by PhocusWire and Mozio, aimed at getting the inside stories behind startups and innovation in travel and transportation.
