Who is Global Travel Alliance?

September 18, 2023

It is the people that make up who and what a company is. Especially in the world of educational travel. And because we are a company that values relationships – clients are no mere numbers here – we are glad to be introducing our fabulous team in this series “Who is Global Travel Alliance.” And we’ll start with someone who has been with us from the beginning.

For over 17 years Steve Maehl has been working for Global Travel Alliance as a first-class Education Program Specialist (our lingo for someone who works with our teachers), an outstanding guide and our current Vice President of Field Operations. He has, in fact, done it all for us…but that’s not all; he has also served for 5 years on the Student & Youth Travel Association (SYTA) Board of Directors and was its most recent President. (For those unfamiliar, SYTA is the association watching out for educational travel; your class trips, essentially. It’s an important organization with an important mission.)

In your search for the right educational travel partner, if you’re looking for someone professional, knowledgeable, hard-working, and a pleasure to collaborate with, you’ll find no better than Steve Maehl.

As a travel expert and connoisseur, it’s hard to select just one favorite destination (he’s visited nearly 70 countries!), but Steve especially enjoys visiting Asia and immersing himself in that culture, cuisine, and incredible hospitality.
