This husband and wife team has an uncanny talent for taking little ideas and turning them into large multi-million dollar organizations.
Prior to starting CRUISE and RESORT in 2004, Kristy and Anthony Adler founded Cruise Fairs Of America, growing it into one of the world’s largest cruise-selling operations. Travel Services International acquired the company in 1997, creating a mammoth organization with over $1 billion in sales. The west-coast division was known for its efficiency, profitability, and high-profile national and local print advertising campaigns in major magazines and newspapers.
The Adlers left Travel Services International in 1999 to form Adler International Consulting Group, specializing in consumer research for the travel/hospitality and technology industries. Several of the nation’s leading cruise lines and hotel companies signed on as clients. Specific projects included consumer and trade perception studies, profitability analysis, process development, customer service guidelines for direct and Internet contacts, and technology integration.
Kristy and Anthony Adler have served on the advisory boards of various travel companies and cruise lines including Royal Caribbean International, NCL, and Holland America Line. The couple has championed consumer protection laws in California, and Anthony served a term as treasurer of the state’s Travel Consumer Restitution Corporation. The Adlers co-founded the Society of Elite Agencies, and have been featured as travel industry experts on network television, in newspapers and in magazines.
Kristy Adler serves on the Travel Advisory Boards for Saveur and Ski magazines.
Anthony Adler is the Editor-in-Chief of Elite Family Travel Magazine, a publication geared toward ultra-luxury family travel. He has also been a popular speaker in the United States, Canada and Asia on issues relating to the travel industry.
