Travel Industry Expertise
Travel Relations’ taCONNECT platform is created and managed by two travel industry and database marketing experts, Scott Whitley and Shaun Whitley.
Over the past 25 years, Scott has developed multiple successful travel trade database management and email marketing platforms and was also a co-founder of the trade media company TravAlliancemedia, formally Performance Media Group (PMG).
Shaun has specialized in B2B and B2C sales & marketing for over two decades, leading successful sales efforts for several leading travel brands such as TravAlliancemedia, SAVEUR, AFAR and Condé Nast Traveler.
Fortunate to have grown up in the travel industry, Scott and Shaun were exposed early in life to the world of travel by their late father, Bob Whitley, former longtime president of the United States Tour Operators Association. Throughout the course of their lives, Scott and Shaun developed deep and trusted relationships in the leisure travel industry and an in-depth knowledge of the travel advisor distribution channel.
