Today, Avoya Travel has announced several executive promotions, including both Jeff Anderson and Michael Anderson to co-presidents and Brad Anderson to co-founder.
As newly appointed co-presidents, Jeff and Michael will direct Avoya’s company vision and guide the overall organization.

While Jeff focused on sales and marketing, Michael brought new technology developments to the company. Now with their new positions, they will continue their family’s legacy, while driving both the Avoya 2025 strategy and future company evolution.
Brad Anderson, former president of Avoya, now joins his brother Van Anderson in the role of co-founder.
