Ever since joining Travel and Transport Ultramar over thirteen years ago, Carolann has been instrumental in developing an "amazing team" for the Account Management Department. According to Carolann, collectively, there is not an industry relations individual out there that this team doesn't know.
With over 25 years experience, Carolann Martini uses her excellent relationship-based negotiation skills on a daily basis to consistently maximize client satisfaction and contribute to the success of their travel programs and, ultimately, their bottom line.
Carolann is quite proud of the extremely high client retention rate Travel and Transport Ultramar has enjoyed under her tutelage. Her other accomplishments include industry-specific benchmarking that her department developed and the creation of strategic plans for her clients in order to take their travel programs to the next level.
Always ready to rise to a challenge, one of the things that Carolann is most proud of is the ability to win over a difficult client. The more challenging, the more determined she becomes. And while she believes "the client is always right", she also feels that that there must be a level of mutual respect. As she puts it, "When you're comfortable that you've developed a true partnership (this doesn't happen overnight -- you must prove yourself), then the relationship flourishes and is advantageous to both parties."
Carolann honed her exceptional skills in various departments at some of the nation's top travel management firms. While at McCord Business Travel Management, Carolann oversaw branch location operations and analyzed financial opportunities, facilitating cost saving measures for clients. She also led McCord clients in a successful transition to WorldTravel/BTI, and managed over $50 million in annual global sales at BCD travel.
An avid traveler and a self-proclaimed "shopaholic," Carolann knows that she has found the perfect position with Travel and Transport Ultramar since she enjoys being invited to her fashion clients' sample sales and hitting the road with her pre-teen daughter.
"I am very proud to be part of Travel and Transport Ultramar's Executive Committee. I know that I've found a home at Travel and Transport Ultramar because I typically have a smile on my face."
