UTD President, Elizabeth Blount McCormick has also been reflecting on her time with Uniglobe Travel Designers:
What is a favorite memory you have from your time at UTD?
I have a few: Moving our office to German Village, purchasing our Peachtree City location, and winning our first client in Los Angeles. I knew we could service clients anywhere once we won the business on the west coast.
What inspires you to lead and do what you do?
Our team and the clients- being responsible for people and providing a safe and open place to work where people are not micro-managed. I enjoy being an entrepreneur and being challenged every day.
What is a proud moment from your time at UTD?
We have clients in 30 states and counting! We are also actively growing our celebrity business, which is exciting.
What is an intense challenge you overcame while leading?
Dealing with racism and being successful in spite of it all. I've also learned to get away from working with tunnel vision and seeing possibilities everywhere.
Currently, we are also still navigating the effects of covid-19 on the business. But I’m inspired by our clients’ continued support and the team’s dedication and know we will pull through stronger than ever. My mom had to lead through the major disruption to travel after 9/11 and I’ve learned a lot from her experience overcoming that challenge as well.
What is something you want to share with clients?
I am grateful that our clients want a reciprocal relationship that is based on mutual respect. I appreciate clients who trust us with their travel needs because we are great at what we do - not just to fulfil their diversity spend - and understand that our national MBE and WBE certifications are just the cherries on top!
Favorite vacation you've been on?
Too many to name! But I always love the annual President’s Cruises and sailing with my family and friends.
Where you are traveling next?
Mexico in the Summer and Greece in the Fall.
What do you hope to see from UTD in the years to come?
I hope to be serving clients in all 50 states and beyond and managing offices on the West and East coasts.
Thank you for a great 40 years!
