"We were drawn to the like-minded agencies that make up GlobalStar's network; they are notably independent, agile and more client-centric than the average travel management companies." commented David Greenland, CEO Concierge Business Travel.
Woburn, MA (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
Travizon Inc., a distinguished leader in corporate travel, meeting and expense solutions, offered a warm welcome today to Concierge Business Travel, Australia. CBT is the newest member of the GlobalStar Travel Management Network—a robust, multinational group that already includes 80 market-leading agencies in over 75 countries.
“At GlobalStar, our priority is to deliver smart travel management solutions and personalized service to our customers around the world,” said Mark van Iersel, GlobalStar’s Director of Marketing and Partner Recruitment. “Based on that vision, CBT Australia is a perfect fit. We look forward to the new business opportunities this partnership will create.”
“The CBT addition is great news for Travizon clients,” added Matt Cummings, CFO and COO of Travizon and Chairman of GlobalStar. “Australia is a fast-growing market for business travel. We see increased demand for travel to, from, and within the country, while Sydney and Melbourne are among the top 25 non-US cities, in terms of business travel per diems. CBT will be instrumental in our regional negotiation and procurement efforts.”
CBT executives expressed enthusiasm for the partnership, as well. “Increasingly our Australian clients have been asking for a managed travel program in all their countries of operation,” commented David Greenland, CEO Concierge Business Travel. “Aside from the geographic reach that GlobalStar offers, we were drawn to the like-minded agencies that make up its network; they are notably independent, agile and more client-centric than the average travel management companies. Those are the attributes that attract clients to us, and they’re the ones our clients seek in other markets, too.”
Concierge Business Travel is well-known for its role as the official travel management company for the Australian Olympic Committee. As part of this honor, CBT provides 360-degree support to AOC executives, employees and Australian Olympic Team members.
Starting today, Concierge business travel customers will have local service and support from GlobalStar partner agencies available to them.
