East Hartford, CT (Vocus/PRWEB) January 17, 2012 - Travel Insured International® has promoted Isaac Cymrot to the position of VP of Sales and Industry Relations, effective immediately. The announcement was made by Travel Insured's President and COO Jon Gehris. Cymrot takes on his new responsibilities having most recently served as Travel Insured’s Director of Sales and Industry Relations.

Since joining Travel Insured in April of 2005, Cymrot has been recognized for his sales success both within Travel Insured's agent network and across the travel agency industry. His first assignment with the company was as Midwest Regional Sales Manager, after which he was assigned to Regional Sales Manager for the Mid-Atlantic in 2006. In late 2007, Cymrot created his popular column entitled "The Monthly Travel Insurance Sales Tip," which has been delivered each month by newsletter.

As a testament to Cymrot's commitment to outstanding client service, he was named the Top Travel Insurance Sales Representative by readers of Travel Agent Magazine, and in the same 2009 poll he became the first travel insurance rep to be voted among the industry’s top three for two consecutive years.

After his promotion to Northeast RSM in 2009, Cymrot managed Travel Insured’s industry partnerships from Maine through Virginia, while also playing a key role in helping educate the company’s partners on the selling details of the updated line of Worldwide Trip Protector Plans introduced in spring of 2010.

Travel Insured’s new Vice President of Sales & Industry Relations said "I’d like to thank Jon and Pete for continuing to show faith in me over the last eight years. I am excited for the new challenges that have been put in front of me. There are tremendous opportunities for growth with the travel agency community and I look forward to continuing to lead our sales team and grow our relationships with our travel agency partners. We have always believed that travel agents are the best distribution channel and we have some great initiatives in 2012 to support that philosophy."
