Cathy Burke

Soon I will be celebrating my 35th Anniversary in the industry that I love. I started out like most other people working at the counter selling holidays and trying to make people's dreams come true! I've worked in all aspects of the industry including training and consultancy for many years. In 2005 Travel Counsellors contacted me to launch the business in Ireland and I haven't looked back since. It's been an amazing journey and we have grown to be on the of the biggest and most successful travel companies in the Republic of Ireland. We stay close to our Travel Counsellors and it gives me a huge amount of personal satisfaction to see them succeed and grow in confidence with each passing year. I am at my proudest during our annual conference when our Irish TC's are awarded for their achievements. It's not just work for me, it's friendship and support through thick and thin that matters too.

I've been in the travel business for 18 years and I love it! My career in travel began on the island of Majorca where I worked as a holiday rep for an Irish tour operator during the 1990's. After a few seasons I returned back to Ireland and gained a huge amount of experience both in tour operation and the retail side of the travel business. I worked in various agencies in a sales and managerial capacity. I joined Travel Counsellors in 2010 and it was the best decision I ever made. My role includes recruitment and business development and it gives me great satisfaction to work with our Travel Counsellors, helping them to achieve their goals and run successful businesses. To work for a company with employee welfare and customer care at it's core is an absolute pleasure. I hold a degree in Human Resources and a certificate in Counselling Psychology.
