San Antonio Travel Agent Honored with TRAVEL LEADERS’ Employee of Excellence Award

Friday, a San Antonio travel agent was singled out from thousands of travel professionals nationally with Travel Leaders’ “Employee of Excellence” Award. Travel Leaders recognized Mary DeGroat of Corporate Travel Planners (CTP)/Rennert Travel, a Tzell branch, which has been a member of Travel Leaders since 2011 for going above and beyond on behalf of both her business and leisure travel clients. DeGroat was presented with her award at the 2012 Travel Leaders National Meeting held in Dallas, Texas, at the Hyatt Regency Dallas at Reunion.

“Mary brings a wealth of experience to her leisure and corporate clients with over 23 years in the travel industry. Her attention to detail, combined with her personal experience, allows her to create memorable vacations that always exceed her clients’ expectations,” noted Roger E. Block, CTC, President of Travel Leaders Franchise Group. “Drawing on her own, personal, global travel experiences, Mary is able to better understand her clients’ needs and desires. Her talent in creating exceptional travel experiences is why many of her clients keep coming back year after year – some have been clients of hers for more than15 years. My congratulations go out to Mary, as she is extremely well-deserving of this honor.”

DeGroat was born in Germany and her family is from England, which helps explain why she has traveled extensively through Europe and has chosen to specialize in European travel. However, her enthusiasm for travel doesn’t begin and end there. Internationally she has also traveled to Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico, among other destinations. DeGroat has also traveled extensively throughout the United States and is a Hawaii Specialist. Every day brings a new adventure and that is one of the reasons why her passion for her clients and the travel industry continues.
