When you have precious time to travel, go with the best. Christy Menzies, owner of Menzies Luxe Retreats, was awarded the 2023 Virtuoso Travel Week Rising Star award in the “Luminaries, Legends, and Leaders” category. This award recognizes the outstanding achievements of a new-to-industry Virtuoso Travel Advisor who demonstrates an exceptional level of production and engagement to the network.
As the 2023 Virtuoso Travel Week Rising Star award winner, Christy “exhibits exceptional promise to become one of the very best,” in the early stages of her career. She achieved “star” status in her first year of launching Menzies Luxe Retreats. As a member of the Brownell Mentoring Program, Christy produced over $1M in invoiced sales in just six months. That set the pace for what is now a thriving business with nearly $4M in annual sales with a steady growth trajectory.
“To be selected by your peers, people with whom you’ve built lasting personal and professional relationships and who are choosing to recognize you for your contribution, is the ultimate honor,” said Matthew D. Upchurch, Chairman and CEO of Virtuoso. “These Virtuoso luminaries, legends, and leaders, including Christy Menzies, represent what is foundational to this network, and that is building something greater together than we could do on our own.”
Virtuoso®, the leading global network specializing in luxury and experiential travel, announced its 2023 Virtuoso Travel Awards during the 35th annual Virtuoso Travel Week, which took place August 12-18 in Las Vegas.
