In 2018 Bohan received the prestigious American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) Lifetime Achievement Award and became a 2018 Business Travel Hall of Fame Inductee. BTN inductees are recognized as the travel industry’s most influential executives. Bohan is also a proud Godmother to Windstar’s Star Legend, and Riviera Cruises Robert M. Burns.
