Corporate Traveller is pleased to announced that its London office will become the European headquarters, ahead of the opening of the brand’s first mainland European office, in Amsterdam on the 5th September.
Beginning its European expansion with the opening of a Netherlands office is a natural next step for Corporate Traveller. After conducting extensive research, the travel management company has recognised there is a gap in the Dutch SME business travel market, requiring a boutique solution.
The Netherlands’ comparable employment laws to the UK and Amsterdam’s position as one of the world’s leading alpha cities, due to its economic, cultural and political prosperity, are key variables determining Corporate Traveller’s European expansion. A further three offices will open across Europe in the next 18 months.
The Corporate Traveller Netherlands team will comprise four experienced executives, including Stephan van Arnhem as the country’s general manager. A business development manager and two travel managers will also join the new team in Amsterdam.
Regarding the opening, Graeme Milne Corporate Traveller’s general manager Europe commented: “At a time when many businesses are considering their relationship with Europe, I’m incredibly pleased to be strengthening Corporate Traveller’s European ties. The exponential travel management opportunities in the Netherlands and our secure grounding in London, means now is an ideal time to invest in the country and further afield.
“Our offering is boutique, meaning each client receives a personalised service, whether in the Netherlands or London, and our expansion won’t change this approach. We’re looking forward to working with a selection of new clients and offering them a strategic and flexible travel management service, that’s guaranteed to save their business both time and money.”
Corporate Traveller Netherlands will also benefit from the buying power of its umbrella company, Flight Centre Travel Group Europe, ensuring it can always offer value for money.
