Celebrity Cruises named host agency Nexion its 2009 Central Region Travel Partner of the Year. The award, presented onboard the Oasis of the Seas in December, recognized Nexion for its performance, creative marketing and training initiatives.
Nexion is a business unit of Sabre Travel Network. Its award was presented by several Celebrity Cruises executives, including Dan Hanrahan, president and CEO; Tammy Egger, director of sales; and Sharla Smith, regional sales manager.
"Nexion is an extraordinary partner and mirrors Celebrity's level of service and commitment to excellence," said Dondra Ritzenthaler, senior vice president of sales for Celebrity.
It was good news to Jackie Friedman, general manager of Nexion.
"Our entire team is dedicated to accelerating the success of our members and our suppliers, which has a direct and positive impact on Nexion's success," Friedman said. "We are constantly looking for innovative ways to stay at the top of our game, and this award underscores that we are on the right track."
