Twenty-five years ago, Sandy Cleary left her career as an aerospace engineer to follow her passion and start a cruise travel agency in her mother’s basement. Under Cleary’s leadership, CruCon Cruise Outlet grew to one of the largest sellers of cruises in North America, with more than $135 million in annual cruise volume. In 2017, Sandy launched a groundbreaking partnership with HSN, making on-air appearances to share her love of cruising with HSN’s 90 million households.

Her latest venture, SLC Group Holdings, seeks to partner with passionate business owners and entrepreneurs that need an investment to take their business or product idea to the next level.

Sandy has won many awards and honors throughout her career for both her achievements in the cruise industry and her philanthropic efforts – including the CLIA’s Lifetime Achievement Award for her contributions to the cruise industry, and NH’s Business Leader of the Year.
