Andrey Zakharenko: President & Travel Curator in Chief
Andrey grew up traveling and when it came time to choose a career he realized that there was nothing else he would rather do. Always Travel was a small family business where Andrey was a part timer while completing his studies. Then, soon after receiving his MBA in entrepreneurship, Andrey set out to create a company which aligned his passions for service, quality, travel and fun.
Driven by his enthusiasm for discovery he continues to explore the world while inspiring others to do the same. He has countless certifications in all of the products the travel industry has to offer and Andrey is a member of many organizations and serves as a spokesperson for the industry. Andrey is frequently quoted in travel publications.
Most importantly Andrey is a people person. We like to say that he is the most extraverted introvert. He cares deeply about delivering superior, wonderful experiences to his clients and winning their rave reviews and repeat business.
