An Independent Agency in the Avoya Travel Network
About Cindy Locke
My Agency is an Independent Agency in the Avoya Travel Network
As success stories go, Cindy and husband David have quite a tale to tell about their meteoric rise as travel agency owners. They are multi-million dollar producers.
It started almost 12 years ago, when Cindy, whose background was in business and accounting for such corporate giants as Tetley Tea and Exxon Corporation, saw an ad placed by Willow CSN, Inc.
For each client serviced, extensive training was required. What caught Cindy's eye, were the handful of Willow’s travel related clients. She selected Oceania Cruises and Virgin Atlantic Airways and received thorough training on each client, culminating with a final exam encompassing many challenging topics. Cindy, passed with flying colors and felt confident in her new role as an Oceania and VAA service provider — confident enough to speak knowledgeably with supervisors and management.
As an Oceania service provider, Cindy frequently spoke to Brad Anderson, president and CEO, Avoya Travel / America’s Vacation Center, American Express, a leading host agency. “I learned a lot about the company and liked what I heard.
The “we” she referred to includes husband David, who was so impressed by Cindy’s enthusiasm and success working with Avoya Travel / American Express that he wanted to be part of the business. He started training February 2005 and on July 5 quit his job at a Florida law school, where he was working in management but was also a law student. David's previous background: University of Pennsylvania, degree in Biblical Archeology and master's in business. David was on the faculty at a local university’s School of Business, teaching in the information-technology and operations-management department.
“I saw that Cindy was having so much fun and loved the travel business,” said David. “We’re very happy with the personal relationship with Avoya Travel / American Express. We receive all the support, terrific training and all the technology— we’ve never seen anything better. And, since Avoya Travel has been an award-winning American Express Representative for almost 20 years, there’s that invaluable element of credibility and benefit to the customer.”
Cindy and David, whose specialties include Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas and Crystal Cruises and Seadream, Seabourn, Cunard, Silversea and Tauck and the following river cruise lines: Scenic, Tauck, Amawaterways and Uniworld and Viking (plus others), can’t say enough about Avoya Travel / America's Vacation Center / American Express.
Cindy and David's customers come from all over the world .
