Brian Flowers

The first part of my life was served in the restaurant and hospitality industry as an Executive Chef and Restauranteur which took me to many places around the world. Becoming a Travel Agent was a destined career, as I have already been to some pretty special places on this planet. From cruising the Mediterranean to sailing the Southern Caribbean, cruising has been a passion of mine and my family. I’ve also trekked through the Italian landscape and found my way to Paris, France for some fantastic cuisine, and all the way to Hawaii and Alaska to experience scenery seen sometimes only once in a lifetime. Let me take you on a journey through these lands as a concierge of your travels. Down the street, up the road or across the world, let’s take a trip because they’ve been waiting for you there!

Mike’s background in destination management and the hotel industry provides a valuable perspective for our Platinum Travel team. His expertise in the travel industry is unique as he is also a former instructor at Sullivan University, where he taught courses on meeting planning and hospitality marketing.
From Anchorage to Cabo San Lucas, Montego Bay to Bermuda, Nova Scotia to Quebec City, and many places in between, Mike’s travels have allowed him a variety of memorable experiences. Snorkeling in Grand Cayman, eyeing the peak of Denali from a bush plane, walking on a glacier, deep sea fishing, and close encounters with whales and walruses, are among his favorites.
Recent trips Mike has worked on for clients include Paris, Alaska, Punta Cana, and Curacao.
