FCm Named World’s Top Travel Management Company Second Year Running

After taking out nearly every regional award in the travel management category of the World Travel Awards 2012, FCm has officially been named the World’s Leading Travel Management Company.

FCm has now won the prestigious global title two years in a row. The announcement was made at a special World Travel Awards ceremony in India last night.

As part of our achievements in the 2012 World Travel Awards, FCm picked up a total of nine titles during the year in the travel management category, two of which we won for the first time.

FCm’s Global Leader Gregory Lording said the accolades had helped to make 2012 an outstanding year for the company.

“To be recognised at a regional and global level by this award program demonstrates that across our worldwide network, the FCm business shares the same award-winning DNA,” Gregory said.

“As a valued client of FCm you can expect the same level of service excellence – wherever you do business with us. Service consistency across our network is a priority for our travel and account management teams and ensures that companies with multinational operations can rely on us for expert and reliable travel management service at all levels of their operation.”

FCm general manager New Zealand, Simon McKearney, congratulated FCm’s local travel and account management teams and said the global award was a welcome addition to their regional award.

“FCm is recognised as a successful company globally, but it is the service from our local teams, our local market knowledge and in-depth understanding of each client's local business culture and travel needs that blend with our global expertise to offer the winning combination of service excellence that we have been lauded for,” Mr McKearney said.

“Congratulations are in order for our travel and account management teams and our sales professionals for their efforts this year.”
