Anne Meadows, President & Director of Operations – Anne has worked in the travel industry since 1972. In 1984, after working twelve years as a retail agent and upper management executive for two major international travel companies, Anne left her secure management career to venture out on her own. Anne, and her husband Carl, moved to Naples, FL and started their own retail travel agency, Exclusive Travel Center (ETC). Although the company started out as a retail travel agency, it quickly grew into the specialized area of conference & convention meeting planning, corporate incentive travel and leisure group travel. In 1993, Anne and Carl sold their retail travel agency and moved their base of operations to Denver, Colorado. They kept the conference and incentive travel business they had developed over the years, and re-branded Exclusive Travel Center as ETC Incentives & Conferences, a dedicated group travel company. Anne continues to successfully maintain and operate ETC Incentives & Conferences’ group travel programs keeping her focus on personalized service and attention to detail.

Carl also has an online group travel business course and teaches at the Colorado Free University in Denver, CO. He is a published author, speaker, and writes travel articles for various travel industry magazines.
