New York, New York (August 20, 2019) — Tzell Travel Group, a leading travel agency focused on providing the highest quality, personalized travel experiences for corporate and leisure clients, is pleased to announce Esther Klijn of CIRE Travel, a division of Tzell Travel, has been named as a 30 Under 30 winner by Travel Agent Central.

“It is incredibly gratifying to see Esther’s growth as an advisor. I saw the spark in her early on and knew her background in wine would be an asset in the luxury market,” said Cindy Schlansky Co-President of Tzell Travel. “Esther has really distinguished herself by learning and growing with CIRE Travel. We are thrilled to see her in this category of other travel advisors who are staying ahead of the curve early in their careers.”

“Esther was eager and ready to learn upon joining us at CIRE Travel. Her passion for travel and immersive experiences while delivering amazing results for her clients, sets her apart from the rest,” said Eric Hrubant, president of CIRE Travel. “Esther’s dedication and efforts on behalf of our clients have them constantly raving about her and that’s something we truly value at CIRE Travel.”

While Esther spent a year in Torino, Italy, pursuing a BS degree in Wine and Viticulture, she fell in love with traveling. Her “learn by going” experience abroad is one she applies to her work. Esther notes that traveling to a destination and experiencing it firsthand makes it much easier to convey the essence of it to a client. Esther’s key to success is her ability to establish personal connections with her clients, as well as sharing her own relatable stories, which really helps when educating them.

“Those recognized in this prestigious group are noted as the next generation of advisors who will discover new places to go and new ways to connect with travelers to deliver incredible trip experiences,” said Monty Swaney Co-President of Tzell Travel. “This is an incredible honor and we are so proud of all that Esther has accomplished thus far.”

Tzell’s business is focused on three key areas: luxury leisure travel, C-suite corporate travel and entertainment travel. Tzell advisors service clients through offices in New York City, Boston, New Jersey, Los Angeles, and London.
