FOUNDER & CEO, CRUISE PLANNERS, CORAL SPRINGS
Cruise Planners is the nation’s largest network of home-based travel agents, with some 2,500 franchisees in all 50 states. “With the new COVID protocols, these advisers will be vital to the resurgence of the travel industry in the coming months,” says Fee, who’s lived in Florida her entire life and is a 40-year veteran of the travel industry. She founded Cruise Planners in 1994.
|EDUCATION||St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale. I don’t have a college degree like your typical CEO with a background in finance. I’m a former travel agent.|
|PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION||I am not afraid to recruit someone who knows more than me about a given topic. Today, we have the strongest executive team we have ever had because I put my pride aside and found the right people who can challenge me to get the best result.|
|SABBATICAL TOPIC||I would love to learn another language, so if I had a year, I would probably go spend it in Italy.|
|READING||A friend recently wrote a book, From Hell to Challah, about her journey during this challenging time.|
