By age 8, Wetu has already lived a full life – 53 lives to be exact (at last count). This speaks to the growth of the brand. We thought you might like to meet the personalities that breathe life into Wetu, the people you deal with regularly and those you don’t. Hopefully you’ll be inspired to #shareyourstory with us too.
As families go, this one is pretty huge and stretches across the globe. We are officially an international company in terms of the destinations we support with content, who our clients are and where we work. Our representatives in the heart of Switzerland share their story:
“We are Tony Grubenmann & Yvonne Noser of Team Wetu Switzerland. We’re based in Huenenberg in the canton of Zug. We face the Alps on the shore of beautiful lake Zug. Agents selling Africa that are based here & in the rest of Europe know us well. We spend our working days contacting potential customers or industry reps, we talk to them, explain our business & arrange to show our product. Personal contact is very important here. People want to see us.
We learnt about Wetu some years back as clients. We’d booked a trip to South Africa with a travel agency in Cape Town & instead of the normal emailed PDF descriptions, we received this magnificent link! This was our wow moment with Wetu. We wanted to learn more about the company & the product; so began our communication with the management. Two years later we joined the Wetu family.
Europeans are travelling a lot & all around the world. So the travel industry is big & pretty well organised. Beside many small companies, we have a substantial number of larger organisations, like TUI, Thomas Cook, Kuoni, etc. in Europe. They run their businesses in a very integrated & highly automated way. Integration of Wetu into existing processes is, beside the management of different languages, our biggest challenge.
Team Wetu Switzerland is small & to create business in Europe is not easy. We are proud to be part of this young team & very happy that we could already win some big customers.”
