Gray Dawes Travel chief executive Suzanne Horner will join the board of Advantage Travel Partnership in December.
Advantage said Horner’s appointment will “ensure that business travel remains high on the agenda” for the consortium, which has committed to investing in products and services for its corporate travel members.
Horner is also chair of the executive board at the Business Travel Association (BTA) and is an “active member” of Advantage Business Travel. She was the winner of the consortium’s Outstanding Achievement Award in 2018.
Advantage Travel Partnership CEO Julia Lo Bue-Said commented: “I believe Suzanne will contribute significantly to our future business travel direction and her high profile will only help to endorse Advantage as the only true business travel commercial organisation, delivering even greater business travel expertise to our community.”
Horner added: “As part of my role on the BTA we have over the past year been forming a closer bond between Advantage and the BTA and I am a strong advocate for industry collaboration. I have seen first-hand through Gray Dawes’ membership of Advantage the benefit we receive, and I am honoured to be asked to take a seat on the board and contribute to Advantage’s vision for the future.”
Steven Esom, Advantage chairman, said: “Advantage is in a prime position to demonstrate the invigorated business travel proposition available to new and future members following the introduction of divisional leisure and business teams, investment in WIN, M&E, as well as extended commercial and innovation resources.”
