KHM Travel Group RDC Spotlight: Jimmy Fair, East Region
Written by: Amanda Bailey on July 19, 2016
If you’ve attended Destination Success at KHM Travel Group’s home office in Ohio, chances are very good you’ve met Jimmy Fair.
Uncle Jimmy, as he’s known to many KHMers, is our Regional Development Coordinator for the East Region. He’s been with KHM Travel Group for eight years, and has become a familiar face at training events and FAM trips.
However, many agents might not know that he was a travel agent for several years and tested the waters at other host agencies before joining KHM Travel.
“I had been with four other host agencies and never felt the love,” Jimmy says. “My expectations were not high with KHM, but after my first FAM I knew this was where I belong.”
Jimmy’s openness and willingness to help other agents make him an obvious choice for a Regional Development Coordinator.
His priority is keeping on top of educational opportunities available in his area, as well as being a cheerleader, friend and liaison for agents.
He encourages agents not to rush, especially when they are first getting started. He also believes that when it comes to being successful, honesty is the best policy.
“Anyone can spot a BS-er from miles away,” he adds. “Be yourself, share your passion, and be a friend. In time, the rest will take care of itself.”
Jimmy shares his passion for travel as an agent, but he also enjoys his full-time job as a surgical assistant. It’s much different and much more stressful work, but he’s come to think of his travel agent life as a kind of therapy.
“I look forward to getting on Facebook, chatting with, and checking in on my travel family members, sharing in their success and shedding a tear or two at times,” says Jimmy.
He is also a grandfather of four!
Despite his busy schedule, he still makes time to travel. His favorite trips (aside from his yearly pilgrimages to Brunswick, Ohio) have been to Mexico.
East Region agents, if you are unable to make it to an event here at our home office, not to worry! Jimmy is hosting an upcoming Regional Training Event in Baltimore, Maryland this September 24th-25th.
Attendees will get to experience two ship inspections, plus trainings with several of our key suppliers: Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean, and Funjet Vacations.
Thank you to Jimmy for sharing your positive energy and years of experience with fellow agents!
