Brett A. Roes, Sr., founder and chief executive officer at Eagle Christian Tours LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in travel and tourism.

Mr. Roes, Sr. has established himself in the travel and tourism industry, excelling as the president and chief executive officer of Eagle Christian Tours LLC since 2012. Eagle Christian Tours offers safe, comfortable, and luxury private bus services for various group travel needs. They cater to corporate shuttles, sports teams, school groups, colleges, tour operators, family reunions, religious groups, bands, civic groups, conferences, and weddings. The company operates primarily in the southeastern United States, serving Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Birmingham.

Under Mr. Roes, Sr.’s leadership, Eagle Christian Tours has gained significant recognition. Prevost, a leading manufacturing company in Quebec, Canada, featured the company in three customer spotlights. The President of Volvo, the world’s largest truck manufacturer and owner of Prevost, visited Eagle Christian Tours to gain insight into its founding journey, which led to an invitation to meet with Volvo’s executive team in Sweden. Additionally, Eagle Christian Tours is the youngest company ever to be invited to join the International Motorcoach Group, comprised of the top 54 motorcoach companies in North America. Other accomplishments include being a three-time recipient of the Bulldog 100 from the University of Georgia Terry College of Business, which honors the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni entrepreneurs, and being ranked the number one consumer-reviewed motorcoach company in the United States

Mr. Roes, Sr.’s work history is also marked by significant roles at The Kraft Heinz Company from 1989 to 1997. He started as a sales representative and moved to roles such as key account sales representative, account manager, account executive, and customer category manager. Prior to this, he was a partner and rigging specialist at Roes Rigging, a division of Bernard A. Roes & Son Inc., from 1980 to 1989. Before embarking on his career path, he pursued an education at Bryan College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in music and musical performance and bible theology in 1988. Due to his accomplishments, the school named him Alumni of the Year. 

In addition to his professional path, Mr. Roes, Sr. has been actively involved in civic and religious roles. He served as a teacher and executive pastor at Northside School and The Church at Northside from 2005 to 2012. Before that, he was the director of WinShape Marriage and WinShape Retreat Center at the Chick-fil-A WinShape Foundation from 2003 to 2005. He also was director of annual fund development at Bryan College from 1999 to 2003, and children’s and family life pastor at Calvary Christian Fellowship from 1997 to 1999.

Mr. Roes, Sr. attributes his success to God’s grace and a strong work ethic. Reflecting on his career, he says he began his business by organizing tours for his church’s senior group, growing from a modest start to a full-fledged enterprise. The first major opportunity came when a local college lacrosse team hired him following a last-minute cancellation by their original bus provider. He believes that setting high standards for guest experience and brand value is why Eagle Christian Tours has been recognized as one of the best workplaces in America and has won the fastest-growing company award three times. In the coming years, he aims to leave Eagle Christian Tours debt-free and establish a private charitable foundation. Additionally, he intends to expand the business from its current tri-city region of Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Birmingham to the south side of Atlanta and Nashville.
