Corporate Travel Management Australia-based 1000 Mile Travel Group is expanding its host agency business into the US, the travel management company has announced.
CDM acquired 1000 Mile Travel Group, a network of independent travel consultants focused on small and medium-sized businesses, at which time they planned to expand into North America. Jamie Pherous, CTM founder and managing director, sees “unprecedented demand” for travel management services in the unmanaged SME market.
“Small businesses are finding increased value in the expertise, support and negotiated contracts available through CDM’s managed travel programs,” Feroz said in a statement. “However, they require a unique level of service and engagement due to their highly flexible operations and support needs. Independent Corporate Travel Consultant fits those needs perfectly.”
As part of the expansion, 1000 Mile Travel Group founders and co-CEOs Nicola Veldman and Ben Ross relocated to Denver to help establish the brand in North America. CTM integrates its leisure host agency MTravel into the 1000 Mile Travel Group so that the group can leverage our combined resources, expertise, tools and infrastructure for the benefits of both travel specialties, corporate or leisure. According to Veldman.
Additionally, CTM is expanding 1000 miles of operations in the UK, TMC said.
