Meet Arjan Helle25 years ago I founded a business called Asia Marketing & Travel Services and my first customer was the Tourism Authority of Thailand. That business has since evolved to become TTM, now with clients worldwide. I feel very fortunate to have been raised by parents who believed that travel was a way of personal enrichment and instilled in me the love of travel from a very early age.

Meet Marjolein FraanjeI started working at Target Travel Marketing in 1993 and to be honest I cannot imagine working anywhere else. Having a job in the travel sector is a privilege anyway, because let’s be honest; what is more fun than traveling for work? Target is a company offering different products and services. This kept the challenge for me all these years.

Meet Hanny FluitAfter working for tour operators for 14 years, I moved to the Marketing and Communications business in 2004. An exciting move as I had experienced working for tour operators (product management and marketing) always as versatile, inspiring and satisfying. But I have never regretted it for one day. All these terms are applicable for my job at TTM.

Meet Ilona NorbartMy career within Target Travel started on the 1st of December 2011. A great day to start because that night we all went out for dinner to celebrate Danny's 5th anniversary.
