Brad Tolkin / Jeff Tolkin, Co-Chairmen/Co-CEOs of World Travel Holdings

Brad and Jeff Tolkin serve as Co-Chairmen/Co-CEOs of World Travel Holdings. They each have more than 30 years of experience as an operating executive in the travel industry. Prior to co-founding World Travel Holdings in 2005, the Tolkins owned and operated Travel Impressions, one of the country’s most successful privately held travel wholesalers. Under the Tolkins’ leadership, Travel Impressions was profitable for 22 consecutive years and successfully operated such prestigious industry brands as Pan American Holidays, Eastern Vacations, Continental Vacations, and Virgin Atlantic Vacations. In 1992, the Tolkins acquired Empress Travel, a retail travel agency with 40 stores, and expanded the chain to include more than 100 locations.

Travel Impressions and Empress Travel were both sold to American Express in 1998. During the Tolkins’ tenure at American Express, they successfully transitioned both operations to wholly owned subsidiaries of American Express®.

Brad and Jeff were elected to the Cruise Line International Association Hall of Fame in 2014.

Brad holds a BS from Cornell University, and Jeff holds a BA from Columbia College and a JD from Columbia Law School.

Brad is a Marine Veteran who served for 26 years with 4 deployments, and he knew the skills he learnedin the military would translate well into business ownership. He wanted to spend more time with his family and regain the times he missed, so having a business he can work from home – and virtually anywhere has been a great fit for him.
