During the four years that I served on the ASTA National Board of Directors and Executive Committee, I had the opportunity and pleasure to work closely with Marc, in his role of Chairman of the CAC. Marc displayed on numerous occasions a deep seated passion for ASTA’s success, constantly volunteering to speak on behalf of ASTA at events, serving on numerous committees, recruiting new members and actively involved in fundraising for the ASTA PAC. One of the committees we worked closely on was the By-Laws committee. Marc was always prepared, understood the issues, logically stated various points of view and brought consensus among the group, even when discussing very contentious issues. I can think of no candidate that I would recommend higher than Marc to serve on the ASTA board. For the continued success of ASTA, please vote for him.
— Roger E. Block, President of the Travel Leaders Network and former Chairman of the Board of ASTA
 

More from ASTA leadership…

Just a few short years ago, ASTA was at a critical crossroad with declining membership and relevance in question. Fortunately, Marc Casto was new to the ASTA Board of Directors and played a critical part in a turnaround that saved our association. ASTA is relevant again and Marc is the perfect candidate to take ASTA to the next level. I fully endorse Marc Casto for National Director at Large.

Highlights from clients of Casto Travel…

As a public, global company it was important for us to move to a managed travel setup. It was critical for us to cover duty of care while also keeping our travelers happy and our costs under control. After a couple TMCs failed our test challenge, Casto Travel stepped in and successfully went beyond our expectations. We followed the challenge by partnering with Casto to implement new technologies and improve upon our travel policies. Through their strong partner relationships, Casto was even able to negotiate special rates with multiple airlines despite us coming from an unmanaged, minimal data setup. With ever changing external and internal influences, we continue to closely partner with Casto, periodically optimizing our setup and making sure that our travelers are getting what they need.
