Sproul's Role at TPI Transitions
02/01/2012 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of independent travel consultants, today announces that Phil Sproul is stepping down as President of TPI effective 29 February 2012, following four successful years at the helm of the company. TPI Founder, Chairman and CEO, Morris Chia, will become President effective 1 March 2012 having previously held the TPI President title for more than a decade prior to Sproul’s hiring.

“I’m a firm believer in time and place,” said Sproul, “and my time at TPI has been filled with great people and great results. I will miss the people most at TPI but I will take everything I learnt with them on to my next adventure.”

Sproul’s tenure at TPI has been marked by an increased influence on the Canadian independent travel consultant segment that TPI has been leading since 1994, among other achievements.

“Phil has been a passionate leader and good friend, and we wish him only the best in his future endeavours,” said Chia.

Effective immediately, Sproul will begin transitioning from his day-to-day role overseeing I.A.S. – Independent Agency Services Corp. companies TPI, Corporate Travel Solutions, and International Golf Vacations to become an advisor to the organizations.
