Bernard Gendron

Bernard Gendron started his venture in the travel business at the early age of 14. His passion for ski led him to organize ski trips for himself and his friends. At the time, he launched a ski club called Skipic, recruiting members in regional high schools and Cegeps. At the beginning, Bernard Gendron’s favourite destinations were Quebec ski stations and those of New York State. Later he led his fellow skiers to Western Canada, Europe and Utah, which has since become his lucky destination. Today, he is president of the most important ski, golf and bike tour operator in Quebec. His secret? Well-designed products, new markets, sound finances and plenty of innovative ideas.

The Agency

In 1982, as the Ski Club was expanding and the trips were getting more complex, Bernard applies for a permit and opens his travel agency. He first runs the whole operation by himself, and then starts surrounding himself with a team of qualified personnel that has now grown to more than 50 employees.

By the end of the 80’s, interest from his loyal customers was shifting to golf. Bernard quickly responds and introduces a golf program in Arizona and South Carolina. With its impeccable service, Gendron Travel even makes tee-time reservations according to the customer’s specifications. With time, the golf program expands and new destinations were added.
