Chapter Director | Chicago

Meet Your Chicago Area Chapter Director, Maria Leach!

I am excited to join the CCRA team as the Director of the Chicago Chapter and I am looking forward to helping you grow your business to its fullest potential.

My career in the travel industry began more than 16 years ago when I was encouraged and inspired to turn my passion into my profession. After gaining years of experience with a host agency, I took the leap of faith to launch M&M Leach Vacations where I support various segments and destinations of the travel industry. I specialize in group travel for generational families, couples, and friends and I’ve built a loyal client base.

My journey from an enthusiast to a professional, and now, to Chapter Director reflects my deep commitment to both our industry and community. My goal as I lead the re-launch of the Chicago Chapter is to facilitate access to resources and training needed for fostering profitable business operations, including fostering connections between agents and suppliers. Drawing from personal experiences and networks, I aim to empower agents to achieve their utmost capabilities.

Outside of work, I enjoy taking annual trips with my husband and family and traveling to spend time with my grandchildren who reside in various states.

I look forward to collaborating with my Chicagoland agents, and leveraging our collective expertise to drive success in the travel industry.
