WorldVentures Marketing, LLC announced today that they were presented with the Platinum Apple Award from Apple Vacations. The Platinum Apple Award is given annually by Apple Vacations, recognizing achievements for top commission earners within the travel industry. WorldVentures was one of two travel companies within Texas to be presented with this outstanding award.
The majority of the bookings were through the company's DreamTrips vacation club. "This award is a very impressive achievement for our company. Our Director of DreamTrips, Grant Merz, and his travel department team have done a fantastic job in booking our vacation packages," said Wayne Nugent Co-Founder of WorldVentures. "Grant's knowledge of the travel industry is unparalleled and he has been instrumental in the success of our company and pivotal in the massive growth of our DreamTrips program."
"I was thrilled when I was notified that we were being presented with the Platinum Apple Award," said Merz. "I could not be more proud of what our travel team accomplished last year. This is just another positive step for us here at WorldVentures. I predict that by the end of 2008 we will have tripled our business with Apple Vacations."
Merz was also recently presented, on behalf of Worldventures, with the Rising Star Award from Funjet Vacations in recognition of WorldVentures being one of their fastest growing accounts in 2007, and Merz indicated "we are well ahead of last year's pace." Merz goes on to add, "Executives at the Funjet office in Irving, TX--Terry Linex, Molly Blackman, and RueAnn Adamson--have been instrumental in WorldVentures growth over the last two years."
