AGENTS: Cook Travel Station

Ed Schmidt, President and Owner,  spent 20 years coaching college football at places such as the University of Washington, San Diego State University, Montana State University, Bowling Green State University and the University of Wyoming. The logistics of arranging lodging, air transportation, buses, meals, etc., was always one of his primary duties.

When Ed decided to change careers, owning and managing a destination management company/travel consultancy seemed a perfect fit. The lessons learned from coaching college football, such as a determined eye on attention to detail, a tireless work ethic, a fierce loyalty to staff, and an uncommon approach to customer service have all served him well.

Ed directs his staff in much the same way he guided his football teams: with encouragement, respect, love and determination. The strength of an organization is clearly exhibited in its leadership, and under Ed's guidance, The Travel Station has earned a reputation in the region as the one which goes the extra mile for its clients, exceeding their expectations.
