Las Vegas, Nev. (June 18, 2018) —San Antonio travel agent Kelsey Mahan was recently singled out from thousands of travel professionals nationally with a Travel Leaders’ “Employee of Excellence” Award. Travel Leaders Network – one of North America’s largest retail travel agency organizations – recognized Kelsey Mahan, from the Travel Leaders location in San Antonio, Texas, for her excellence and commitment to going above and beyond on behalf of her leisure travel clients. Mahan was honored at EDGE: Educate, Discover, Gather and Evolve – the annual international conference of Travel Leaders Network.

“Kelsey has been with Travel Leaders for two years and has achieved an array of amazing accomplishments,” said Roger E. Block, CTC, President of Travel Leaders Network. “She is truly an outstanding professional. Among her achievements are her certification training and attainment of sales and commission goals, including being named a Million Dollar Agent in 2017, with sales topping $1.15 million, a number she is expected to exceed in 2018. Her dedication and energy are worthy of both praise and emulation. She’s an invaluable asset to her colleagues and her clients and I congratulate Kelsey on this extremely well-deserved honor.”

Mahan joined Travel Leaders / Rennert Travel in March of 2016 as a general leisure agent. During that time, she has completed a number of rigorous certifications, including becoming an Australia and South Pacific leisure specialist. She has also completed the Travel Leaders Leisure Specialist and Active & Adventure Travel Specialist programs and is on target to complete the Travel Leaders Luxury Specialist program in June 2018. Mahan is also working on her Certified Travel Associate designation, which is a continuing education program that allows her to attain additional product knowledge and remain current on industry trends.

As a result of Mahan’s certification as an Active & Adventure Travel specialist, she has been selected to attend the Adventure Elevate Convention in Banff in the Canadian province of Alberta in March. Also, among Mahan’s accolades, she was recognized in 2017 by Travel Agent magazine as a “30 under 30” highly accomplished travel professional.
