Eyre Bus, Tour & Travel

Matt Eyre
President

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
“Our mission statement is ‘Excellence in Travel.’ That is what every employee is working for every day,” says Matt Eyre, president of Eyre Bus, Tour & Travel.

ONBOARDING FAMILY
“We require work outside the family business for at least two years to gain an outside perspective before joining the company,” says Eyre. “We certainly see there is great value in this approach, as it helps with perspective and appreciation. When my brother Brad joined the company two years ago, we created a ‘Working Relationship Contract.’ This was a signed document signifying our commitment to ensuring a positive working relationship at all times, while keeping a harmonious family relationship as well.”

Quick Tip: “It is not where you live or what you have or don’t have that makes your life. It’s you. It’s who you are. That is the true value of your life … the awesome sauce you bring to the table.”

CULTURAL VALUES
“We work in a blame-free work environment — always looking to improve the process, not pointing the finger,” says Eyre. “We are very proud of the great people who work at our company.”

LASTING LEGACY
“The Eyre vision is to lead through inspiration and to be of service to the employees and customers,” says Eyre. “My favorite line at the office is, ‘It is my pleasure to serve.’”
