As Luxury Travel Advisors, we know discerning travelers have access to several sources of information when planning a trip, but we know that it takes more than secondary research to make a trip truly unique.
CEO AND PRESIDENT
Shawna has been a passionate traveler since her early years when she lived with her family in Istanbul, Turkey. After receiving her BA from Colby College in Art History and French, and her MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, Shawna spent 15 years as a management consultant. In 2008, Shawna decided to shift gears and focus on travel as a profession by joining forces with her father, Tony Huffman. As CEO and President of Huffman Travel, Shawna is based in Chicago. Shawna’s specialties lie in upscale vacation planning for families, romantic getaways for couples, and holiday celebrations around the globe.
Founder AND Chairman
Before founding Huffman Travel, Tony spent 20 years as Chief Marketing Officer for a Fortune 500 company. Tony began traveling the world at a young age and has not stopped. Embodying the belief that travel is educational, Tony and his wife Pokey continued to explore exotic destinations with their children as they grew up. Tony founded Huffman Travel, a luxury travel consulting firm, to marry his passion for travel with a second career. As the company’s Founder and Chairman, Tony travels the world discovering new and exotic destinations, great hotels, unforgettable guides and favorite neighborhood restaurants and shops.
