Craig organized Pavlus Travel 28 years ago after a remarkable 26-year career with TWA serving as Senior Vice President of Marketing, President of TWA Getaway Vacations and President of The Travel Channel. A constant innovator, Craig recognized the Internet in its infancy as the vehicle to market last minute travel at discounted prices to clients throughout the world. Now Pavlus Travel is recognized as one that provides luxury travels worldwide. Pavlus Travel is now one of the United States largest retailers of luxury travel with revenues over $100 million dollars.
Craig is an industry disruptor. He takes on major online agencies and wholesale big box stores selling travel by providing lower prices and outstanding service. During the two years of Covid, Craig kept every one of the 43 Team Members on at full salary and did not furlough any employees unlike most every other agency in the USA. He is fiercely loyal to his clients and the Team at Pavlus Travel. The business is known as the best luxury travel agency for personal service and best prices.
