FCm named Europe's Top TMC for 2014
August 11, 2014
FCm has retained the title of being Europe's best corporate travel provider after being named Europe's Leading Travel Management Company by the World Travel Awards for the sixth year.
FCm Europe first won the World Travel Award for corporate travel management in 2008 and has won the award consecutively since 2010.
FCm's Regional Sales Director for Europe Tate Williams-Crawford collected the award for FCm at a gala ceremony held at Divani Apollon Palace and Thalasso in Athens, Greece.
Tate said it was an honour to represent FCm at the awards ceremony following such a huge year of growth and success in the European corporate market.
"FCm Europe has significantly contributed to parent company Flight Centre Travel Group's result this year," Tate said.
"FCm's operation in the UK was one of FCTG's top performers in terms of profit growth and one of the group's most improved over the 2013/2014 financial year.
"When you combine the success of our UK operation with the efforts of our entire European network, which has been critical to FCm's growth in the multinational client sector, the FCm brand and business is proving to be a growing force in corporate travel management in this region."
Tate said FCm's European footprint had also been strengthened during the year with FCTG's acquisition of Dublin-based TravelPlan Corporate Limited, which was formerly FCm's licensee in Ireland.
FCm's Global Leader Gregory Lording congratulated FCm Europe on its long-running success in the World Travel Awards.
"I'm thrilled to see our European network honoured again with this prestigious award." Gregory said. "We've been working hard to differentiate ourselves in the market by focusing on our approach to servicing, product and of course securing the best deals for our clients.
"We see FCm Europe as a major area of growth for our global operation and will be dedicating significant resources to our sales, technology and client servicing strategies to facilitate our push forward in this region."
