Liaisons Travel, previously owned and operated by Lynn Beierschmitt, posted sales of over $8 million in 2002, and has 11 employees. They support two corporate on-site locations in the Chattanooga area and have a strong meeting and group sales department. The Main Office is located within the CBL building adjacent to Hamilton Place Mall. Lynn will remain involved on a full-time basis.
This acquisition is part of World Travel’s plan to continue growth outside the Knoxville market. The combined entity will post sales of almost $65 million annually.
