BCD Travel voted ‘Most Admired TMC’ by The Beat readers for the 8th time

UTRECHT, The Netherlands, Dec. 11, 2020 – The BTN Group yesterday recognized BCD Travel as the 2020 Most Admired Travel Management Company for the fourth consecutive year. The designation was bestowed by readers of The Beat, a widely read business travel newsletter and website. It’s the eighth time since 2009 that BCD has been named Most Admired TMC by The Beat’s readers.

The Beat readers identified their most admired companies in six categories: airlines, hotels, car rental companies, TMCs, technology providers and payment systems. Winners were determined based on a reader-poll conducted this summer. Readers voted for the suppliers they most admired for their policies, management style and service for business clients. Participants were not allowed to vote for their own employers.

“We’re honored to be named Most Admired TMC by The Beat’s readers for the eighth time,” said John Snyder, president and chief executive officer at BCD. “We’ve cherished this award since we received the first recognition in 2009. It’s even more meaningful today given that BCD management and staff stepped up in difficult times and supported our clients when they needed us the most.”

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 over 10,000 readers through its paid-subscription newsletter and website that provide breaking news about corporate travel distribution, travel management and technology. 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, including Forbes’ list of America’s Best-In-State Employers 2020, Flexjobs’ list of Top 100 Companies for Remote Work, Comparably’s list of employee-rated Best Companies for culture, women and diversity, a Gold Stevie® Award for best travel app, and a Platinum Medal for sustainability performance from Ecovadis.
