NEW YORK, NY (Thursday, October 14, 2021) — Frosch International Travel (FROSCH), co-headquartered in New York City and Houston, has purchased a 51% interest in the corporate division of Conlin Travel in Ann Arbor, MI. The partnership provides FROSCH with a larger foothold in the Great Lakes region, an area where the company historically has not been very active. The Leisure and Specialty Travel Divisions remain 100% owned by Conlin Travel.
Conlin Travel had sales of over $200 million in 2019, with corporate travel accounting for $160 million. No major operating changes are anticipated at the company, with Chris Conlin remaining as Managing Partner, responsible for customer relations and actively managing and growing the FROSCH-Conlin corporate business.
The partnership gives Conlin Travel access to key resources and infrastructure such as FROSCH’S global operations platform and innovative technology solutions that simplify and streamline the travel experience for clients.
Bryan Leibman, President & CEO of FROSCH said, “Aligning ourselves with Conlin Travel allows us to grow our corporate business in key states like Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
