Operations Senior Manager Dan Lakatos has dedicated more than 20 years to helping business and government travelers get where they need to be. But even with all that experience, he never stops learning. His BCD team’s work for the U.S. Forest Service’s firefighting crews provides a great example. After every deployment, they consider ways to improve. “We continually update our processes and procedures,” Dan explains. “And at the end of each wildfire season, we meet with the Forest Service team to plan for the next year.”
