Stewart Travel Management, the Glasgow-based travel management company has announced major expansion plans linked to a resurgence in demand from the business sector.
They have recruited five new employees and they’ve hired as Operations Manager, well-known industry executive, Donald Munro, who has more than 20 years business travel experience based in the Aberdeen area.
The ambitious development programme comes on the back of an upsurge in business with long standing energy sector clients together with new business delivered through a number of the most dynamic, up and coming businesses in the area.
Mr Munro will head up the company’s North East corporate operations from the firm’s Inverurie office where the new staff will be based.
Director of Corporate Travel Craig Patterson said:
“These are great times for business and the north-east market especially is really motoring again. From our point of view we’re really excited to be a part of it. Our investment in the Inverurie operation forms part of our ambitious plans for expansion in 2019.
“Like many of our clients we’re great innovators and we too like to think differently, embracing the latest technology and most up-to-date approaches to make our clients’ travel experiences more effective.
“Our clients are like-minded and buy in to what we offer - we’ve secured a huge amount of new business based on client recommendations which is really the best kind of testimonial you could ask for.
“We’re picking up a really exciting range of new clients from all sorts of sectors and now feature some of the country’s fastest growing businesses on our roster. That’s why we need more staff - to grow on that success.”
He added: “A lot of what we do is based on the highly-tuned personal service which we offer through our amazingly talented team whose knowledge is unrivalled and whose top priority is to ensure the best possible service.
“To that end we use all the tools we have at our disposal including the latest apps to guarantee fast effective booking across all devices on the go. This is a service we offer 24/7 and our team really give their all, going the extra mile with the goal of customer satisfaction at the forefront of everything they do.”
He added: “As we expand further, we will continue to offer an innovative and different approach to the Aberdeen market providing a friendly, bespoke, hand held service.
“We work closely with all the world's major airlines, hotel groups and car rental companies.
“And we are constantly developing and expanding our already formidable buying power and passing those savings on to our clients. So, it makes financial sense to utilise our expertise, save money and avoid costly mistakes.”
