Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 25, 2011
Leading travel management company FCm Travel Solutions, a division of FC USA Inc, has named Garry Sutton the Brand Leader for the soon to be launched Corporate Traveler business. Garry will manage the startup of Corporate Traveler in the United States, with the commencement date of July 1, 2011, and will report to John Beauvais, President of FCm Travel Solutions.
Flight Centre Limited, the parent company of FC USA Inc, currently operates the Corporate Traveler brand in its home market of Australia, and also in its subsidiaries in Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and South Africa. Corporate Traveler, serves small to medium sized corporations who generally have self-managed their travel programs, and brings the benefits of a managed travel program to those companies. Corporate Traveler will be a companion operation to FCm Travel Solutions, which will focus on larger corporate accounts.
“Garry is the right person to launch the Corporate Traveler brand and I have great confidence that under Garry’s leadership this business will thrive in the U.S. market just as it has in the other countries it operates,” said John Beauvais.
Garry is a Flight Centre veteran having been with the group for sixteen years starting in New Zealand, then working in the Corporate Traveler operation in Canada, and most recently having the role of National Operations Leader for FCm Travel Solutions in the United States.
“We feel the time is right to launch the Corporate Traveler brand in the U.S.A. International experience has shown there is a demand for the business model which offers our clients a local dedicated Account Manager who takes the time to build a relationship with the travelers and travel coordinators, allowing for delivery of a more personal and insightful service to ensure the highest levels of client satisfaction.
I am delighted to be leading this dynamic and exciting new brand. We plan to launch the operation in nine cities, and I look forward to further expansion into other major cities in the USA in the coming years as well as expanding our presence in the markets where we will startup our operation.”
