"When travellers find and experience their own personal dream vacation, we have arrived at our destination"
Company owner Claudia Majunke has 25 years of experience in tourism. An apprenticeship in a travel agency was followed by many years with a tour operator and various stays abroad. In 1994 she successfully opened the representation office for Abercrombie & Kent in Frankfurt before taking over regional sales management for South African Airways. In 1999 she ran the sales office of Kerzner International in Frankfurt, looking after DACH and the Netherlands, during which time she was able to develop the Russian market for the One&Only and Atlantis brands, becoming responsible for One&Only Resorts international in 2007. In 2010 she became independent and founded Majunke International Sales.
"I am fascinated by observing new travel trends, launching new travel ideas and creating new superlatives in tourism"
Elena Link developed an early passion for geography and her constant wanderlust made her want to be able to make her home anywhere in the world so it wasn’t surprising that she decided to study tourism. Her first job after graduating from the University of Trier led to her becoming a tourism consultant at the European Tourism Institute. In 1999 she moved to the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, where she worked for ten years as a PR and marketing consultant responsible for the German-speaking, Northern and Eastern European markets. She has been with us since 2012 as a Marketing Executive.
"We don't yearn for certain places, but for the feelings they evoke in us"
Desiree Brandscheidt gained her first experience in sales and marketing while studying tourism. Semesters abroad in San Francisco and on Mallorca fed her enthusiasm for tourism and travel. After her studies she started her professional journey with a trainee program at Steigenberger Hotels, where she subsequently joined the Convention & Sales Department. She has been energetically supporting us since June 2017 as Sales Manager.
