Madsen will oversee strategic acquisition and services for British Columbia, advancing TRAVELSAVERS CANADA’s mission of driving more business with agency affiliates in that province.
Madsen’s career as a business development manager in the travel industry began in her early twenties. She was the first individual hired at Sunwing Vacations in Western Canada back in 2006.
Then, three years later, she moved to the Jamaica Tourist Board, where she received the “Favourite Supplier Representative award” at the 2022 Baxter Agents’ Choice Awards.
“Emma has gained exceptional experience, diversity and recognition in the industry as a highly regarded travel professional,” said Jane Clementino, senior vice-president and general manager at TRAVELSAVERS CANADA. “Emma’s industry expertise will be instrumental in driving the company’s continued growth and success for our agency partners in western Canada.”

As an avid traveller and adventure seeker, Madsen has both heart and passion for her work.
“I’m looking forward to being part of such a dynamic team and helping to elevate our agencies,” Madsen said in a statement. “TRAVELSAVERS has really taken off in Canada and I want to contribute to that growth and excitement.”
Clementino added: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome such a driven and passionate individual to our team. Emma’s knowledge and skills will definitely make a positive impact on the ever-growing success of TRAVELSAVERS CANADA.”
