The Polar Adventure Company has named Thomas Lennartz as partner and managing director, effective immediately.

With a career spanning over two decades, Lennartz joins the Polar Adventure Company, a specialist in polar travel, from Quark Expeditions, where he served as vice-president of global sales, overseeing the company’s global sales and customer service strategies.

Prior to that, he spent 14 years at Arctic Kingdom, initially as an expedition leader before advancing to head of global sales, marketing, and product development.

Lennartz was also just named to Conde Nast Traveller’s prestigious Travel Specialists list as an “Expedition Cruising Specialist” for the 14th consecutive year.

Founded by polar industry veterans Clayton Anderson and Jason Hillier, the Polar Adventure Company boasts more than 50 years of collective expertise in polar expeditions.

Dedicated to curating polar journeys from the world’s premier operators, the company’s collection of 1,500 polar-focused trips ensures advisors and their clients receive expert advice at the same price as booking directly with the tour company.

“Thomas brings a wealth of experience in polar travel, encompassing expedition cruising and land-based journeys. His deep knowledge of this niche industry, combined with a genuine passion for adventure, makes him a valuable addition to our team,” said Jason Hillier, company co-founder, in a statement. “His appointment underscores our commitment to providing exceptional service and guidance to travel advisors and their clients who are seeking extraordinary Arctic and Antarctic experiences.”

“I am thrilled to partner with Clayton and Jason, and to further expand the Polar Adventure Company’s influence in offering unparalleled and impartial insights and advice on polar travel expeditions,” stated Lennartz. “As this landscape continues to evolve with new operators, our aim is to provide travel advisors with quick and seamless access to the best recommendations tailored to their clients’ preferences, all at the best value.”

Commenting on his recent recognition on the 2024-2025 Conde Nast Traveler Travel Specialists list, Lennartz added: “I am truly honoured to have achieved this designation for the 14th year in a row. This recognition reflects my unwavering dedication to providing exceptional service related to polar expedition travel and I am excited to now offer this same knowledge and expertise in my new role with the Polar Adventure Company.”
