Professional Travel and Direct Travel Join Forces

Direct Travel bolsters its position in the North American market by acquiring top travel management company Professional Travel of Cleveland, OH.

Founded in 1963, Professional employs more than 175 employees with total combined sales of $448 million and represents Direct Travel’s largest acquisition in the US to-date.

“We’re proud to bring a prominent TMC like Professional into the Direct Travel organization,” said Ed Adams, Direct Travel CEO. “Professional shares our deep commitment to customers and employees alike and we’re positive that this will be a strong asset to the mutual benefit of both companies.”

“We’re enthusiastic to begin this new chapter with Direct Travel as it will allow us to provide more depth and a wider array of services to our clients,” said Professional Travel Chairman and CEO Bob Sturm. “Direct Travel’s focus on the mid-market customer along with their service excellence means they are committed to the same guiding principles that have shaped our agency from the beginning.”
