CIRE (“Eric” backwards) was founded by Eric Hrubant and specializes in corporate, group, luxury leisure and honeymoon travel. In addition to Hrubant, the agency is home to 12 advisors.

First in Service said CIRE’s addition is “part of a larger strategy focused on vigorous international growth of the company.”

“CIRE Travel’s renowned commitment to exceptional concierge-style service aligns perfectly with ours, particularly their never-say-never problem-solving,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said CIRE is one of the largest affiliates to join First in Service, which plans to add more affiliates and 50 more independent agents this year.

In an email, Hrubant said he was excited about the new affiliation. “Fernando and the team at F1S and I have similar goals for growth, so it’s a very exciting time.”
