MOULTONBOROUGH — Sandra Cleary, owner and President of CruCon™ Cruise Outlet, started her cruise travel agency in 1995 in the basement of her mother's home and steadily grew into an industry powerhouse with 75 employees. In 2013, she began construction of a 30,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters in Moultonborough, in order to accommodate the growth of her expanding workforce which is estimated to grow to 150 by the spring of 2014.
On Monday, September 30, Cleary was presented with an award as one of the top 5 women-led businesses in New Hampshire. This honor was the result of an annual report and review of women-led businesses by Business New Hampshire Magazine. CruCon Cruise Outlet's rapid growth and over $100 million in annual sales has brought her company into the limelight in New Hampshire. Until recently, the majority of their notoriety has been more global with national awards like their recent Top National Agency of the Year award from Vacation.com. CruCon Cruise Outlet is the only United States agency in a network of more than 5,000 agencies to be honored with the Vacation.com award.
For five years in a row, 13 million Travelzoo® subscribers voted them "Best Agency for Cruise Deals." Accepting the award, Cleary credited her team of travel experts for her success. "We truly provide a concierge level of service; we know how important a vacation is! We take great care to find our customers the best cruise package and help make the planning process run smoothly."
Cleary was featured in the magazine's October issue as one of five intriguing women business leaders in New Hampshire. CruCon Cruise Outlet is located at 70 Whittier Highway, Moultonborough.
