Stephen Smith, senior vice-president, leisure marketing North America for Direct Travel (which has Vision as its leisure arm for Canada), says the expansion of the management team is a reflection of the ongoing growth of the company.

"We are now seeing our leisure sales volume eclipse our record 2019 levels - something we didn’t anticipate seeing until the fall,” he says. 

The company is currently undertaking a recruitment campaign and, according to Smith, offers benefits, training, and worldwide connections second to none. 

Smith concludes:

“We are delighted that so many advisors are choosing to call Vision ‘home’.”
