BTN's annual answer book for business travel managers.
2017 marked a year of regulatory impacts both in the U.S.
and in Europe, from U.S. President Donald Trump's travel bans to the EU
Commission's final direction on the General Data Privacy Regulation. BTN's 2017
25 Most Influential, announced at BTN Group's Business Travel Trends
& Forecasts conference in New York today, recognized those individuals and
23 others. The influences include mergers, as well as dissolving partnerships, that
affected not only travel managers but also travelers. BTN also named one
individual for something that didn't
happen: Outgoing Amtrak CEO Charles "Wick" Moorman distinguished his
leadership tenure by avoiding the so-called Summer of Hell that New York
Governor Andrew Cuomo had predicted as the railroad repaired its track system
at Pennsylvania Station from mid-July through Labor Day.
BTN's annual list recognizes those who have made major
impacts on the industry, most of which are positive, though BTN's editorial
team also recognizes the negative effects of certain industry players.
