Anthony Travel Announces 75th University Athletic Partner With University of Michigan
Anthony Travel, the nationally recognized and award-winning leader in collegiate sports travel management, announced its 75th university athletic department client with a multi-year partnership with Michigan Athletics. Anthony Travel will serve as University of Michigan Athletics’ travel provider and fulfill comprehensive travel services for the Athletic Department.
“We are excited to partner with Anthony Travel in support of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff,” said Andra Krievs, Chief Financial Officer. “Anthony Travel’s unique expertise in sports travel and focus on continuous improvement will allow us to bring our travel operation to the next level.”
As part of the partnership, Michigan Athletics will benefit from two on-site account managers dedicated exclusively to the UM Athletic Department travel management needs, including scheduled air, charter air, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, international team tours, and other services as requested.
“Partnering with our 75th athletic department client is a huge accomplishment, but partnering with the University of Michigan has been a personal goal of mine for many years,” said John Anthony, President and CEO of Anthony Travel. “Michigan is a leader in college athletics and higher ed in so many ways. Their decision to select Anthony Travel to manage their athletic department travel is extremely gratifying and speaks to our leadership position in the Big Ten Conference and throughout the country. Adding our 75th athletic department is a testament to our amazing partners and associates across the nation.”
In addition to the University of Michigan, Anthony Travel serves as the official travel partner for six other universities in the Big Ten Conference: Indiana University, Michigan State University, University of Nebraska, Northwestern University, Purdue University, and the University of Wisconsin.
