When Lisa Derby joined the team of Personal Travel Management 14 years ago she came with a love and passion for travel that held no boundaries. Her career flourished during the following years to become one of the top agents with PTM and will be greatly missed by all of us. Although retiring from front line work Lisa has agreed to continue to share her extensive knowledge with us when we need her, which is priceless. … Lisa, we wish you nothing but the best in your next chapter!
After much consideration and reflection, I have ultimately decided that the time has come to retire at the end of June after 29.5 years. I am very optimistic about the future of travel. Retirement was something that I had on the horizon to begin to slowly roll out over the next few years. My decision to expedite my retirement due to the shut down came just as my daughter is heading off to UVIC in the fall and these are some of our last months at home together as a family.
These past few months have reminded me just how precious time shared with my loved ones truly is and have provided me the opportunity to take the necessary time and energy to begin winding down my career in an intentional manner.
My heartfelt gratitude and let you know that it has been both and honour and a pleasure working with you over these last few years.
I trust without a doubt that we will all be back travelling in no time and I want you to rest assured that my incredible Personal Travel Management team will be here to take impeccable care of you when the time soon comes to plan your next big adventure.
Just like you, I can not wait to start travelling again and creating new lifelong memories with my friends and family when the time is right. I will forever be grateful for my rewarding career in this incredible industry and the amazing clients like you that made it all worthwhile.
Thank you for your support over the years and I wish you many more exciting adventures ahead.
