FCm Travel Solutions has been named Europe’s Leading Travel Management Company (TMC) in the 2011 World Travel Awards for the second year running and for the third time since 2008. After winning the same category for Europe in 2008 and 2010, FCm this year maintains its World Travel Awards’ status after being voted Europe’s best TMC by travel industry professionals across the globe.
Described by The Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry, the World Travel Awards aim to separate the good from the outstanding, and identify companies that consistently excel beyond expectation. This year around 213,000 industry professionals from the travel, tourism and hospitality sectors were eligible to take part in the voting process.
FCm Travel Solutions Global Brand Leader Gregory Lording said the company was thrilled to be holding on to the title for the second year in a row.
“We’re delighted to accept this World Travel Awards accolade and proud to win the award for yet another year,” Gregory said. ”This award is testament to the outstanding customer service and excellent results that FCm consistently delivers to our customers. It also recognises FCm’s solid reputation in Europe, which is upheld by the professionalism of our people, our regional focus and the strength of our geographical coverage. All of these attributes ensure FCm can provide an unrivalled level of service for business travellers.”
General Manager for FCm in Europe, Middle East and Africa ( EMEA), Brian Donnelly, said FCm’s combination of global presence and regional structure was quite unique in the travel management sector.
“Our strategic approach enables FCm to offer multinational clients a stronger focus on their regional requirements and greater knowledge of each local market. At this level, we can also be more flexible and more responsive to our clients’ needs,” Brian said.
