Travel Edge has announced that Michael Johnson has been appointed President of Travel Edge, taking on leadership of the $500 million leisure travel company.
In his new role, Johnson will assume responsibility for both Travel Edge Business and Leisure with an emphasis on creating tools and solutions to drive best-in-class client experiences and increased revenue.
For the past two years, Johnson has served as Executive Vice President of Travel Edge Leisure, driving $150 million in unprecedented growth and a renewed focus on community.
He joined the organization after 18 years in the luxury retail space, and this background of delivering exceptional customer experiences has been a key factor in Travel Edge’s growth as a leading agency in luxury travel.
“Travel Edge was born from the idea that we could offer advisors a curated, more relevant and exclusive experience to help them grow their unique businesses,” said Johnson in a release. “The expertise of travel advisors is at the heart of our travel offering. The future of luxury travel lives with the ICs – they need a partner who can help them take their business to the next level.”
Some of Travel Edge's leading initiatives over the past 12 months in support of travel trade communities include:
- Offering an unheard-of signing bonus of up to $250,000 during the first months of the pandemic.
- Launching a series of unique live industry events, the Limitless Luxury Conference, focused on exploring the world’s best luxury destinations and partners.
- Curating six Ultra Luxury Micro-Top Performer Trips.
- Connecting Travel Edge Advisors with the leaders of luxury travel through a new Keynote Speaker series.
