Ted founded the company in 1988 after serving five years with the Norfolk Convention & Visitors Bureau. In 1984 he initiated the nation’s first marketing campaign directed at the military reunion market. Having spent over 30 years working with reunions, it could be said that Ted’s got seniority on everyone in the industry. In the past five years the company has developed a division dedicated exclusively to DoD’s Yellow Ribbon program. AFR has always been about military meetings and is a natural partner to DoD in plannning events nationwide and worldwide.
