This week, EY honored Michelle Fee, CEO and co-founder of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, as a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2016 Award in South Florida. The awards program, which is celebrating its 30th year, recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“When I first dreamed of Cruise Planners, I never imagined it would be what it is today,” said Michelle Fee, CEO and co-founder of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative. “I have to pinch myself when I think about being recognized as a finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year and all the hard work the Cruise Planners family puts into the company.”
Cruise Planners’ business model is unique since Fee is not the only entrepreneur impacted. In fact, the network has more than 1,400 franchises across the U.S. and each one is a small business, so the impact of entrepreneurship is much greater.
“My greatest accomplishment is when I help other people succeed,” Fee said. “I enjoy having a personal connection with our franchise owners, where I can share my travel industry knowledge while also positively impacting the bottom line. Travelling globally with our agents has allowed me to take my impact beyond the office and out into the world.”
Now in its 30th year, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year program has expanded to recognize business leaders throughout the world and Florida’s award winners will be announced at a special gala on June 9, 2016, in Tampa, Florida.
