Jetset Travel Norwood’s Nick Lowes Wins Australian Rookie Of The Year

July 25, 2013 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Nick Lowes, Travel Consultant at Jetset Travel Norwood, has been awarded “Rookie of the Year” at the 2013 AFTA National Travel Industry Awards (NTIA) in Sydney on Saturday [20 July].

Hosted by the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA), the awards celebrate the achievements of the Australian travel industry over the past 12 months.

Nick, who flew to Sydney with Directors Michael Pound and Neil Moreton, along with his mum and dad to attend the event, says he was shocked to receive the award.

“To be nominated for this award in the first place was a surprise, but to get up in front of 1,200 people and receive an award was something else. It’s been an incredible year and this is the icing on the cake for me,” says Nick.

Having caught the travel bug from childhood trips with his parents, Nick opted to go straight into a travel course after finishing high school. Within six months of landing a role as a receptionist at Jetset Travel Norwood, Nick was promoted to Travel Consultant.

Nick says success is about making the most of the opportunities you’re presented with.

“For anyone starting out in the travel industry, I’d say it’s important that they get out and do as much training and learning as they can. I know I wouldn’t be receiving this award without the help of my colleagues and sales reps, who have been not only great to work with, but are excellent sources of knowledge for me as well. All the support they’ve given me over the years, including tips and tricks, have helped set me apart from the rest.”

Nick celebrated his third anniversary with Jetset Norwood on 15 July and says he now looks forward to continuing to grow with Jetset Travel Norwood.

Michael Pound, Manager/Director at Jetset Travel Norwood, says Nick’s positive demeanour, customer service and teamwork have made him a valuable part of the team.

“In the past three years, Nick has consistently demonstrated his passion for travel by providing our customers with a very high quality of service. He’s an asset to have on board and I expect he’ll go a long way in the industry,” says Michael.

Jetset Travel Norwood was also nominated for “Best Retail Travel Agency Single Location,” and “Best Manager Retail,” and won the coveted “Best Retail Travel Agency – Single Location” at the 2010 NTIA.
