President / Director
Growing up in the bush in Zambia has given Shelley a lifelong passion and appreciation for different cultures, nature, and wildlife. She had an amazing childhood watching her family build and run a safari lodge in the Kafue National Park.
Since arriving in Calgary in 1980, travel has continued to be a focus for Shelley; from working as a travel consultant to managing a travel agency for 15 years, and then co-owning and operating Tier One Travel since 1994. She has travelled extensively, but don’t be surprised if you hear her say “Africa. It’s just so amazing!” when someone asks her about her favorite destination.
Sales and revenue growth are Shelley’s area of focus. She assists with marketing and recruitment initiatives and helps Tier One Travel independant agents develop their business as well as create strong and loyal relationships with our travel partners.
Shelley has spent more than 20 years gaining experience in the travel industry thanks to a variety of opportunities, including spending 10 years as a travel franchise owner.
Randa has been working in the travel industry since 1981. She started her career as a travel consultant and moved on to managing a travel agency. For the past 26 years, Randa has supervised and controlled the accounting and finance side of the business at Tier One Travel. Combining this practical experience along with her extensive travel adventures and her knowledge of the many industry changes over the years, Randa brings to Tier One Travel what it takes to be successful in the travel industry.
