UNIGLOBE will celebrate its thirty-year anniversary in 2011. “What has separated UNIGLOBE franchises from their competitors is not technology, marketing, or innovation,” said chairman and chief executive officer U. Gary Charlwood. “These offerings are part of the job description. We opened our first UNIGLOBE franchise in 1981 on the premise that a winning travel brand is built on dependability and delivering beyond clients’ expectations. We live these values in all we do. I believe this is why the UNIGLOBE brand continues to grow and attract new talent today.”
