Travel Weekly has a lot of good things to say about YTB. It was just about a month or so ago, that YTB was listed on Travel Weekly's Power List of Travel sellers (top 35 world wide for general travel and top 11 in leisure travel). Now J. Kim Sorensen, Ceo, YTB Travel Network, has been named as one of the 33 most influential people in the travel industry. To read the post in Travel Weekly, click on this link

Travel Weekly Names J. Kim SorensenOne Of 33 Most Influential PeopleIn The Travel Industry
Travel Weekly, in an article dated 11/20/2007, has named YTB Travel Network CEO, J. Kim Sorensen, to its list of the 33 most influential people in the travel industry. The article states that the "most influential" list is filled with people who have veered from the status quo and succeeded so spectacularly that they have influenced the course travel is taking in 2007, and will be just as influential in 2008.
"I am truly honored and humbled to be included on this list," said Kim. "Especially since YTB is not about me, but about the great team and the huge network of representatives and referring travel agents that were willing to take a chance on a new way to sell travel. I speak for the entire company when I thank Travel Weekly for recognizing the huge potential of YTB." Travel Weekly's 2007 Power List named YTB the nation's 35th largest seller of travel and the 11th largest agency for primarily leisure travel for the year 2006.
