NEW YORK/CHICAGO – AUGUST 24, 2021 Fischer Travel and Fortis Global today announced a strategic alliance that unites Fischer Travel’s exclusive luxury travel and lifestyle services with Fortis Global’s bespoke emergency travel advantages to offer members elite travel assistance with the assurance of safety and security.

Through the alliance, both company’s members gain exclusive access to an incomparable suite of experiences that combine exceptional travel services and amenities with superior medical, legal, and security advantages that elite travelers demand in an ever-changing world.

Ashley Tate-Gilmore, former White House Travel Office Director turned CEO, founded Fortis Global with a mission to reduce exposure and assure preparedness to obstacles that can arise during global travels. Fortis offers its members access to an exhaustive suite of services such as local medical professionals, MedEvac services, pre-trip security reports, elite security operations, local attorneys and legal services, and assistance with expedited visa and passport service. Fortis Global’s proprietary portal and app connects members to all of its global resources, including trip details, advisories, and 24/7 in-app communication with a designated Fortis associate.

This first-ever alliance for long-established Fischer Travel adds to its elite services and further anchors the company as the preeminent global luxury travel and lifestyle agency. As a startup, Fortis Global strategically sought this alignment to expand its already-rich product offering and enhance member experiences, ultimately allowing the company to emerge from the pandemic stronger and highly effective.

“We are always looking to enhance our client offerings and are impressed with Fortis Global’s expertise and resources. With their Presidential-level experience and resources, we are confident our members will receive the exceptional service and personalized care we’re known for,” said Stacy Fischer-Rosenthal, President of Fischer Travel. “We share the same values and feel a natural synergy. I am excited with my role as mentor to Ashley and to work closely together as female leaders running family businesses in the luxury hospitality space.”

“Fischer Travel is the consummate luxury travel and lifestyle agency, so we are thrilled to join forces to offer our members these perfectly complementary services,” said Ashley Tate-Gilmore, CEO of Fortis Global. “We’re a young company and we’re excited to learn from their vast experience in providing excellent member service as we continue to build our brand.”

Fischer Travel Enterprises Launches New Hospitality Consulting Firm

Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting Provides Expert Guidance to Hotel Owners, Developers, Operators

Fischer Travel Enterprises, the ultra-exclusive travel and lifestyle company, known for setting the highest standard for service excellence in the global hospitality industry, has created a new venture; Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting. The new company will serve as property and guest experience advisors to hotel owners, developers and operators.

Founded by Fischer Travel’s President Stacy Fischer-Rosenthal, working in partnership with the company’s long-time Vice President Dee Branciforte, Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting (FRC) builds on a legendary reputation in the high-end luxury market by providing global expertise in property and amenities management, service standards, and hospitality innovation.

Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting’s goal is to provide expert advice to hoteliers on how to heighten their offerings and transform their brands. Whether hoteliers are scouting a property for possible purchase, diversifying their product, or seeking to breathe new life into an established landmark, the company provides the expert insights necessary to achieve success.

Fischer-Rosenthal conceptualized Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting while exploring the world seeking the very best for her Fischer Travel clients. While planning trips, she would also be asked by resort owners and hoteliers how they could better tailor their interiors, services and amenities to reach their desired high-end clientele.

“We understand that hotels and resorts aren’t simply just built, they’re cultivated,” says Stacy Fischer-Rosenthal. “Which is why I’ve created a process of consulting that begins with a deep exploration into our partners’ ethos and culture. Coupled with years of first-hand experience in luxury travel, our clients gain access to insight that will help them attract and retain the world’s most discerning guests.”

Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting has already assisted several top-tier hospitality brands and iconic properties including Aman, One&Only, The Ranch at Rock Creek, Over Yonder Cay, Eleven Experience and more.

Fischer-Rosenthal credits her father, hospitality industry icon Bill Fischer, for helping her to develop the expertise necessary to serve the world’s most knowledgeable travelers. Fischer Travel has made the impossible possible over the past 50 years for its members who pay a $100,000 entry fee to become a client and a $25,000 annual renewal fee to remain one. The company provides the highest level of service to obtain the unobtainable for their members. Finding an unavailable villa over holidays, securing 50-yard-line seats to the Super Bowl, or even convincing a hotel to knock down walls to create more space for their clients are a small sample of their ability to make the insurmountable possible.

“Over the last 30+ years working with my father, I have curated the most extraordinary and luxurious trips imaginable, so we know very well what this audience is seeking,” said Fischer-Rosenthal. “More than that, Fischer Travel’s unconventional model means that we’ve been able to forge long-term relationships based on unparalleled levels of trust and confidence. The creation of Fischer-Rosenthal Consulting is a natural extension of that trust and hoteliers can feel confident that the product and service recommendations we provide are based on our unmatched experience with an extremely desirable audience.”
