My career began over 25 years ago when one of my Humber College instructors helped me to get a summer job in England working at a corporate travel agency in the heart of London. Later I did my 4th semester placement at Thomson Vacations, then the largest tour operator in Canada. Eventually Thomson hired me and during my stay at the company I worked in reservations, sales and product before moving on to a 2 year stint at Marlin Travel as Ontario Marketing Manager. I then moved back to the wholesale side of the business as sales manager with Alba Tours and eventually became Vice President of Sales and Marketing. When Alba was bought by Sunquest Vacations I took over the combined sales forces of both companies as Vice President of Sales. After many years at the company I moved to Conquest Vacations where I worked as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for over 10 years. I now own my own company, Canlink Travel Representatives, in partnership with my wife who started the company over 15 years ago. Canlink is now a leading hotel and destination marketing and representation company with clients throughout the Caribbean. I have a Diploma in Travel and Tourism from Humber College and a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson University.
