ISON Travel, the UK’s fastest-growing TMC, proudly announces its acquisition of Global Excellence Inc., a leading US-based company specializing in corporate travel management and luxury leisure travel. This strategic move marks a significant milestone in ISON Travel’s expansion, enhancing its ability to offer unique, high-quality services to its clients, suppliers, and partners across the globe.

Founded in 1994 in Providence, Rhode Island by Diane Plante and Patti Pillay, Global Excellence Inc. has built a reputation for exceptional service and expertise in the travel industry. With an annual turnover of $11 million, the company excels in managing corporate and leisure travel, conferences,
meetings, and events.

ISON Travel, established in 2013 by Helen Cannon, has rapidly gained recognition for its outstanding service and cutting-edge travel technology. Recently ranked 41st in the Sunday Times’ 100 fastest-growing private companies, ISON Travel specializes in corporate travel, marine, and crew movement, sporting groups, production travel, and large-scale event management.

The introduction of Helen Cannon to Diane Plante by a mutual acquaintance catalyzed this acquisition. Cannon was seeking a company that aligned with ISON Travel’s culture and expansion plans, while Global Excellence Inc. was looking for a buyer committed to sustaining its legacy and valued customer relationships.

This acquisition enables ISON Travel to enhance its service offerings on both sides of the Atlantic. With established operations in the UK, Middle East, India, and the Philippines, and now with a strong presence in the US through Global Excellence, ISON Travel’s clients will benefit from a seamless, global travel experience. As part of its ongoing growth strategy, ISON Travel also plans to expand further into Europe, ensuring it continues to meet the needs of its growing customer base.

Helen Cannon, Founder & CEO of ISON Travel, commented: “We are incredibly proud of ISON Travel’s reputation for exceptional service and employee satisfaction, so it was important to me to find a company that shares these values and in Global Excellence we have.”

“Our mutual vision for further supporting our existing customers in additional countries gives us an immediate and exciting mission together.” Diane Plante, Founder, of Global Excellence Inc. adds.
