For those of you that may have not met me, my name is Dominic Karl - and please let me take this time to briefly introduce myself.
I have been in the luxury & executive transportation business for 21 years now. I have had the distinct pleasure of working with some of you for most of those years as well.
I am honored to be a part of WITS - an amazing group of professionals. The wealth of your knowledge and personal experience within the travel industry never ceases to amaze me every time we get together. Although we sit on 2 very different sides of the “travel” business - retail and vendor - our philosophies, wants and needs land on the same side.
I have always lived by this motto:
“Excellence is an art won by training and habit. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit!”
As your President, I am here to serve on your behalf and create an atmosphere for growth and success. I welcome suggestions and ideas that you feel will grow and strengthen OUR organization.
I promise to you that within my term:
* I will maintain and enhance our educational programs so that they will continue to best serve each of our members and the industry as a whole.
* I will also remain steadfastly committed to WITS' quest for membership growth.
* Lastly, I will maintain a solid financial base for WITS while always keeping the best financial decisions in mind; knowing how to and when to reinvest financially into any organization is a crucial trait a leader must have.
Here is to an outstanding 2018-2019!!
