BCD Travel named ‘Most Admired TMC’ by The Beat readers for sixth time
UTRECHT, The Netherlands, Oct. 5, 2018 – The BTN Group today recognized BCD Travel as the 2018 Most Admired Travel Management Company. The designation was bestowed by readers of The Beat, a widely-read business travel newsletter and website that provides breaking news, in-depth articles and high-level interviews on corporate travel distribution, travel management and technology.
The award was based on a poll conducted this summer that asked readers to choose the company they “most admire for its policies, management style and service for business clients.” Participants were not allowed to vote for their own employers.
“We’re honored by this recognition that our colleagues, peers and clients have given to our company,” said John Snyder, BCD Travel President and CEO. “I’m proud of our entire global workforce for their commitment to innovation and excellence in customer service, which is reflected in our being singled out.”
The Beat readers identified their “most admired” companies in six categories: airline, hotel, car rental, TMC, tech provider and payment system.
The Beat is published by The BTN Group, which also publishes Business Travel News and Travel Procurement magazine and is part of Northstar Travel Group. The Beat serves an audience of over 10,000 through its paid-subscription newsletter and website. Its readers include travel executives from corporations, TMCs, airlines, hotels, global distribution systems, technology providers, car rental firms, payment systems, consultants, financial analysts and media.
The ‘Most Admired TMC’ award joins other recent accolades for BCD Travel including being named one of America’s Best Employers for Women 2018 by Forbes and ranking 29 on a list of 100 companies noted for flexible work environments by Flexjobs, among others.
