OUR (LOCAL) HISTORY

 

Travel Leaders/Owned & Operated by Goli's Avenues of Travel has been serving the needs of the traveling public since it began as Goli Travel Service in 1949.  In 1984, current owners Rebecca Naugler, Kathy Davig & Elizabeth Ranger purchased the company and renamed it Goli's Avenues of Travel; in 1992 the agency joined Carlson Travel Network, which, in the mid 90s became Carlson Wagonlit Travel and in 2008, Travel Leaders.

Since purchasing the agency in 1984, despite numerous challenges within the travel industry, it has grown from under $4 million in annual sales to more than $22 million and is ranked eleventh in women-owned businesses in the state of Wisconsin.

A frequent winner of Carlson's national Award of Excellence, the agency was also named the Associate of the Year in 2004 at the Carlson Wagonlit Travel National Meeting; the agency earned a national Award of Excellence at the first Travel Leaders National Meeting in 2008 and again for years 2010 and 2011.

The company is a blend of corporate, leisure and group/incentive travel, offering travel management services to corporations, both large and small.  In addition, the agency is proud to provide specialists in many destinations and venues.
