Re: Director of Corporate Travel
Dear Mr. Alden,
A slowing economy and rising gas prices are among the recent headlines that are affecting U.S. travelers and their summer travel plans. Corporate travelers, too, are sensitive to economic fluctuations and may need to adjust their business schedules to reflect the “belt tightening” imposed by many companies. According to Dr. Stephen Gooden, senior vice president of research for the Travel Industry Association of America, “The challenge lies with the industry to package the travel product to stimulate demand.”
As a Certified Travel Counselor with 18 years of industry experience, I am accustomed to working with both corporate and leisure travelers to plan and coordinate their unique travel needs. I have established myself as a top producer and been highly successful in cultivating repeat business into longstanding, loyal customers. As a manager, I have identified and capitalized on key marketing opportunities and, through persistence and leadership by example, built highly productive, cohesive sales teams. By participating in ongoing educational workshops and seminars, I have kept current on the ever-changing needs of today’s travel-savvy consumer.
Given my professional background and personal travel experiences, I feel uniquely qualified to meet your needs for a Director of Corporate Travel. I believe that the combination of my management experience, sales and customer service capabilities, and thorough understanding of the travel industry will help boost your bottom line. I will call you Thursday morning concerning any questions we both may have and to discuss a personal meeting. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you.
