Medjet appoints Laura Heidt as new Travel Agency Sales Director
Medjet, the industry leader in air medical transport and crisis response memberships for travelers, today announced the appointment of travel industry veteran Laura Heidt to spearhead select travel agency sales for the company, including its Virtuoso consortia agency relationships.
Prior to joining Medjet, Heidt was based in Atlanta, where she managed all regional sales for Travelex Insurance Services in the Southeastern U.S. Working with her own extensive portfolio of Virtuoso clients, Heidt grew her regional business at Travelex significantly over the course of more than a decade.
“We are very pleased to welcome Laura to the growing team at Medjet,” says Roy Berger, President and CEO of Medjet. “With her extensive experience with Travelex and Virtuoso, she is the latest in a string of exceptionally qualified additions to our sales and marketing team that already includes former executives from Berkshire Hathaway, Hyatt, Travelocity and MTV/Viacom.”
Heidt received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Oklahoma and her Master’s in Business Administration degree from Western State University in Gunnison, Colorado. She and her husband, Gary, will soon relocate to Birmingham for Heidt’s new position at Medjet’s corporate headquarters.

Medjet is the industry leader in travel protection and medical transport, forging a global network of air medical transport affiliates and security providers over the past 26 years. At any given time, Medjet has access to more than 250 private air ambulances and commercial medical escorts, as well as specially trained emergency medical and security personnel, ready to launch from both domestic and international locations 24/7. The company most notably differentiates from other players in the market through its commitment to arrange air medical transfer to the member’s home country hospital of choice (not just “nearest acceptable”), regardless of medical necessity. Similarly, unlike other travel security and response membership programs, the company’s MedjetHorizon option does not rely on hard triggers, such as government-issued evacuation orders, to act on behalf of members.
