Upon her return to Grand Rapids in 2017, after 28 years of living out of state, Mindy Alexander says accepting the group sales director position at Witte Tours was the perfect homecoming. “It felt like I’d truly ‘come back home’ to a role where my expertise was immediately put to use,” she says.
Alexander’s team crafts unique itineraries for groups with specific travel goals, including performing ensembles, student groups, churches, alumni organizations, and other special interest groups. “The best part about this job is that no tour is the same,” Alexander says. “We draw out each group’s objectives and create the ideal travel experience that delivers the right sights, sounds, tastes, and personal connections in each destination.”
Business is booming, and Alexander and her team continue to reach new milestones. “This past March, we had the highest volume of passengers traveling than ever before in our 44-year history,” she says. “It’s a pleasure to continue Witte’s long tradition of escorting groups to places they’ve never been.”
