    “We’ll be celebrating our birthday with these 10 outstanding new agents which have been strategically chosen to add strength and substance to the group. The businesses themselves are of the highest quality but more importantly, the owners are all successful, highly driven and ambitious, traits that fit Link perfectly,” he said.

    Link co-founder and director, Penny Spencer, welcomed the new members.

    “As a leadership team, all on the Link Board are absolutely delighted that these businesses have accepted their invitations to join Link Travel Group. I know all these businesses and owners personally, and I know that all will highly benefit from what Link has to offer and we are excited by what they will also bring to Link. All Link members share the same core values and vision, and I’m genuinely excited for this next chapter in our history.”
