Our Leadership Team

Jeff Verman Bio

Jeff Verman, CEO

Jeff had the good fortune of spending eleven years of his life in university, working on 4 degrees, including a PhD in philosophy.  The discipline of philosophy was his main focus, although one year was spent on an M.A. in Economics.  Although an impractical subject, philosophy’s intellectual rigor has proven invaluable to him.  From mathematical logic to how to interpret data, the lessons learned provided a clear road map on how to operate a travel agency, which includes issues like helping clients understand their travel data in ways that are meaningful. Jeff’s goal with Plus Travel Group from the beginning was to deliver superb personal service; provide value beyond the mere booking of travel; and to stay ahead of the curve with the very best technology available in the industry.  

Jeff was once told to always surround himself with people who are better at doing the things he needed done than he’d ever be.  He’s done his very best to follow this advice.

Kind Words from our Customers

“Our company has had the pleasure of working with Plus Travel Group for 6 years now and we can say that we’ve been very happy with their level of service.

We use an experienced agent and Concur Travel to service our employees across the country. Their Account Management are always conducted promptly on our behalf which is greatly appreciated. I strongly recommend their services and guidance to organizations looking for a travel management company.”

Lindsey, National Retail Company 

 

“Plus Travel Group has been a vendor of our company for over eight years. We appreciate the dedicated service we receive from the travel agents assigned to our account. They continually go out of their way to make the travel booking process seamless.

I am responsible for our company’s travel account and meet with the Account Management team annually. They always come prepared with an easy to follow presentation highlighting our year-to-date and year-over-year spend on air travel, hotels and car rentals. They also go the extra mile to outline where efficiencies can be made.

In addition to our annual meeting, they put together monthly spend reports to make sure we are on track and staying within our budgets. Our finance department appreciates these reports, as it makes their life that much easier.

I speak on behalf of all my colleagues here at Hudbay when I say Plus Travel is an exceptional travel agency.

Ms. L, Mining Company

“We began service with Plus Travel Group in June 2018 using Concur Travel and Expense.

Our objectives were (and are): quick and easy booking process for staff, cost savings (including preferred vendors) where possible, staff following policies, better reporting, and better expense process.

I’m happy to say that Plus Travel Group has delivered! I highly recommend them.”

Lisa, National Association

 

“Our company has been using the services of Plus Travel Group for over 10 years. And I’m delighted to recommend their services. 

We use both assigned travel agent and their online booking tool – Concur – to service our employees in Canada and the United States. We have a detailed travel policy and they’ve customized our Concur site to ensure policy compliance. 

Plus Travel also negotiates rates on our behalf with hotels, car rental agencies and airlines. This is part of their Account Management services which also includes detailed reporting. You’ll find them a pro-active team.”

Mr. P, Technology Company

 

“I’ve had the pleasure working with Plus Travel for the last few years. The staff are very efficient and reliable. Whenever I have a question, they are always happy to help, whether it is for Concur Travel or with regards to travel bookings.”

Franca, Financial Company
