NEW YORK – Anthony Travel, an On Location company, announced an on-site travel management partnership with James Madison University Athletics. JMU Athletics travel will be managed by an on-site Anthony Travel account manager that will be responsible for individual and team travel. The account manager will be exclusively dedicated to the Dukes and work alongside JMU staff in the athletic department.
Anthony Travel’s experience managing travel for over 90 athletic departments across the country is particularly beneficial to JMU due to their upcoming move to the Sun Belt Conference. They will benefit from Anthony Travel’s preferred vendor rates, recommendations, and negotiated benefits when traveling to their new conference peer cities. Anthony Travel will streamline the booking process while helping the department leverage their spend in order to capture savings. Anthony Travel also has travel management agreements with Sun Belt peer Georgia Southern and incoming members Marshall University and Old Dominion University.
“This arrangement with Anthony Travel will be a huge lift to our department and bring efficiency to all aspects of our team and administrative travel,” said Jeff Bourne, Director of Athletics at JMU. “As we move into the Sun Belt, our travel needs have shifted both in geographic footprint to new destinations and in the nature of our travel. JMU Athletics will truly benefit from the expertise and resources afforded by Anthony Travel.”
“It’s such an exciting time for the Dukes with their move to the Sun Belt, and we are ready to help alleviate any added burden that can occur when traveling to new locations and working with new vendors,” said Jim O’Connor, Senior Vice President of Anthony Travel. “Our on-site account manager will save their staff significant time in travel planning and provide peace of mind that their needs will be met so they can continue their record of championship success.”
