CTI Corporate Travel International has appointed Clive Wratten as sales and marketing director.
Wratten joins the company from Etihad Airways where he was UK general manager for eight years. In his time at the airline, he was responsible for implementing a sales and marketing strategy that grew sales revenues from £65m to £200m.
Wratten was also a director of the Board of Airline Representatives in the UK (BAR UK) – an industry association that promotes the business interests of scheduled airlines with a UK operation or representation.
He joins the company in July and will lead the sales and marketing team and reports directly to CTI CEO, Ian White.
White said, “Clive has a strong record of driving revenue through innovative direct sales and channel partner strategies. He oversaw the development of Etihad in the UK from a small player to one of the country’s top 5 airlines and is widely regarded as one of the industry’s leading figures. Clive’s appointment highlights the ambition we have to grow CTI in to the leading travel management company in the UK.”
