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 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.
It's hosted by PhocusWire's editor in chief, Kevin May, and Mozio co-founder and CEO David Litwak.
