About Anne Rogers
Anne Rogers established the Wings Away Travel agency in 1985.
Her passions for innovation and marketing, in all its forms, saw the agency become a well respected and awarded industry leader and a founding member of both Magellan and Cruiseco – both of which offered suitably innovative and complementary business models. The agency was also among a very small group of initial members when Virtuoso came to Australia in 2004.
In 2017 Anne sold Wings Away but still remains engaged in the travel industry with specific interests in mentoring and advisory roles, focusing on a new passion – business succession.
Throughout her career Anne has consistently sought wider industry knowledge and involvement, both within Australia and internationally, and has held numerous board and committee positions as a result, including a 3-year tenure on the AFTA Victoria Board as Chairman from 1994 to 1997.
Anne enjoys a strong personal brand having delivered numerous conference keynote addresses and participated in many panel discussions. She is sought after as a mentor and expert adviser, and is a member of the judging panel for the National Travel Industry Awards.
