Milwaukee, WI – January 13, 2015 – Adelman Travel, a leading corporate travel management company, today announced it has acquired Plaza Travel, Inc., a Dallas, Texas-based travel agency.

This acquisition further strengthens Adelman Travel’s commitment to provide innovative business travel solutions with personalized VIP services and to expand their vacation travel services into new markets. “Plaza Travel is a great fit for us because of their high commitment to customer service in corporate travel, meetings and vacation travel,” commented Bob Chaiken, Adelman Travel CEO. “Our growth plans include strategies in each of these areas, and our success can be attributed to the skill and professionalism of our staff, which is by far the most significant ingredient of a successful travel company.”

Plaza Travel, a privately held company, has sales of more than $20 million. The company was founded by Mark McCool in 1980 and has grown organically and through mergers and acquisitions.

We will continue to provide our clients with the same personalized service utilizing the same personnel and continue with our local responsiveness from our North Dallas operation. By joining Adelman Travel, we will have more to offer business and vacation travelers than ever.”
