Montrose Travel honored as “Hometown Heroes” and closes 2016 with a company-wide celebration.

Montrose Travel closed their Diamond Anniversary year with a number of exciting festivities to celebrate their continued growth and success. Saturday, December 3rd proved to be an eventful evening with two such celebrations both in the local community as well as within the Montrose Travel community.

The festivities began with the 40th Annual Montrose-Glendale Christmas parade – a family-focused event with more than 500 people in the community including youth groups, cheerleaders, bands, celebrities, political dignitaries and local Police and Fire departments marching down the festively-lit Honolulu Boulevard, with a special guest appearance by Santa Claus himself. Montrose Travel was honored as one of the community “Hometown Heroes” with company leaders, Joe and Julie McClure and Andi McClure Mysza, acting as Grand Marshals in the parade. This served as a true testament to how Montrose Travel has been a pillar of the community since their inception in 1956.

One year ago, Montrose Travel announced its acquisition by Corporate Travel Management, allowing the former family-owned agency to operate on a global scale. This local honor comes at a time when Montrose Travel is experiencing growth like never before, but serves as a reminder of how they have stayed true to their roots.

“We keep our community very close to our hearts,” states Montrose Travel President, Joe McClure. “Our company was born here, nurtured here, and grew here.” Montrose Travel has continued to be active in the community for the past 60 years by supporting local organizations, sports teams and events, and evidently, it has not gone unappreciated.

Later that same evening, Montrose Travel held their annual Year-End Holiday Awards Party at the Oakmont Country Club in Glendale, California, where a record number of over 400 employees, independent contractors, friends and business partners enjoyed delicious food and drinks, entertainment, comradery and inspirational speeches.

During this joyous event, Montrose Travel celebrated the strongest sales and profit performance in the history of the company and honored a number of the travel industry’s strongest performers of individuals and partners who have gone above and beyond to nurture the commitment to their mutual success. From Presidents Club to Partners of the year, everyone from receptionists to travel agents, web developers to travel suppliers were recognized.

After the awards, guests danced the night away with party props, photo booths and hand-made cocktails. This special evening gave Montrose Travel the opportunity to celebrate all the hard work and effort that went into making 2016, their 60th Anniversary, such an incredibly successful year.
