Travis, a record-setting swimmer as a Hornet, continued his successes at Cornell, breaking three school records in his time there and graduating with a degree in Agriculture Resource Managerial Economics. 

In 2001, he started his company, Brothers International Food Corporation with just 1 employee.  The company has grown to over 40 employees and has offices in Rochester, North Carolina, Ecuador and China. 

Brothers International includes an Ingredients Division, one of the largest importers of fruit concentrates and purées in the United States; Brothers All Natural, which makes 100% freeze-dried healthy snacks, which entered into a co-branding arrangement with Disney; and Lost Vineyards, their wine division, which imports ultra-value wines from across the globe.

Brothers International believes in giving back to the community and has donated to several youth, education, religious, and health charities in Genesee County and western NY, including Wilmot Cancer Center and Golisano Children’s Hospital, home of the Travis and Katharine Betters Sibling Clubhouse, a supervised room for healthy children to enjoy, while their sibling receives care in the Hospital. 

Travis resides in Victor, NY with his wife Katie and two children Josephine and Alexander.
