Global Ambassador Concierge Cracks the Code of Delivering World-Class Service in China


Washington D.C. — March 31, 2008 — More business is being done in China than ever before, but receiving the high level of service American executives require has been lacking until now.  Global Ambassador Concierge (GAC) announced today that it will provide services to fill the gap between the available services in China and the service requirements of elite travelers.


Global Ambassador Concierge provides each of its clients with a highly trained English-speaking professional who knows what demanding western travelers to China require for a successful trip.  Each Global Ambassador is an expert in removing communication barriers, resolving transportation issues in real-time and providing hassle-free dining, shopping and touring experiences. 


The service is the invention of Vincent Wolfington, a travel service leader who is no stranger to the heightened expectations of world-class travelers.  He is the past Chairman of the World Travel & Tourism Council and the former Chairman of the Board and CEO of Carey International, Inc., a worldwide chauffeured vehicle services company.


“We see a great opportunity in providing high-achievers from the U.S. who, whether on vacation or on business, demand a high degree of service and will pay a premium to not waste time dealing with services that are in their early stage of development,” said Mr. Wolfington, Founder and Chairman of Global Ambassador Concierge.


The value of Global Ambassador Concierge is immediately realized the moment a client lands in China. The client is directed through a VIP customs line before being whisked into an awaiting car that knows where to go and the best way to get there. A phone is available in the car and any last minute needs are addressed immediately.  Every step in the trip is managed with this type of expediency, from managing a hectic cross-city meeting schedule to arranging a memorable dining experience.


“Our Global Ambassadors really show their value when plans are changed on the go,” said Mr. Wolfington, “a road is closed due to ever-changing construction, a business meeting turns into a dinner meeting and a world-class restaurant is needed immediately or the client decides a little time to shop would be nice but has no idea where to go and what the market prices are — your Global Ambassador will orchestrate the solution and make the experience easy and stress-free.”


The training that Global Ambassadors receive is second-to-none and is recognized nationally as creating experts in delivering end-to-end world-class travel experiences in China. The GAC method is so successful that it is now part of Tsinghua University’s curriculum on continuing education and certified by that institution. GAC training ensures that Ambassadors are experts in facilitating professional language interpretation in related to shopping, dining, cultural orientation and entertainment.


China is the most rapidly growing and dynamic business environment in the world today, however, it is an environment whose culture is distinct from the customs and logistics present in Western business centers. Global Ambassador Concierge demystifies these distinctions with the highest level of service, local knowledge and expertise.


Global Ambassador Concierge is based in Washington, D.C. with representatives in New York City, Beijing, and Shanghai.  Visit the company’s web site at
