Rick Wood, Travel Broker And Owner of Project Expeditions, Wins Air NZ Award
At the August 2012 Air New Zealand Awards Night, Rick Wood from Auckland scooped the prize for TOP Travel Broker nationwide for the financial year 2011-2012.
In addition Rick also picked up a prize of being in the TOP 10 Air New Zealand retail sellers nationwide.
The Air New Zealand Awards Night is to thank and celebrate all the top retail performers within Air NZ that made company revenue of any kind in the past year.
Targets were set for each division and only the top achievers are invited to the awards night. This covered the divisions of the Call Centre with the Air NZ 0800 number, retail outlets like the Holiday Shoppes, travel brokers, Koru Memberships, and other ancillary retail divisions.
In order to be invited to represent the broker division a broker has to earn over $1 million dollars’ worth of sales in a financial year. Of the over twenty travel brokers in NZ only four brokers achieved that. Rick was one of them. In addition he was the top broker achieving well in excess of $1 million in sales.
Reaching this target means that Rick Wood is one of best retail sellers in the Travel Industry. Rick has 40 years’ experience in the Travel Industry, his point of delivery is quick, and he is efficient and professional which sets him apart from other travel brokers.
Being a broker and contracted to Air NZ, Rick is able to offer the best rates from all the travel suppliers in the industry, not just Air NZ, which makes winning this award all the more remarkable.
With Rick’s 40 years travel industry experience and having owned and managed over 6 travel agencies there are few in the travel industry that have the selling experience he does. Having been ‘head hunted’ by Air NZ as their first travel broker when setting up this new division signifies that he can bring a level of service and experience expected from an airline of quality that trades under a strong brand name. The fact that he has achieved over 1 million in revenue sales is a testament to their trust, support and promotion.
This award means that Rick’s clients will always know that he will offer them the best value travel for their money every time, and as an award winning broker, he is proven to have the best professional service and delivery you would expect in a Travel Broker.
