The National Business Travel Association on Monday named Jack O'Neill, president of Carlson Wagonlit Travel North America, as its NBTA Allied Member of the Year at its NBTA International Convention & Exposition in Houston. NBTA bestows the award annually to a supplier member whose actions have helped to advance the travel management industry.

"Jack has been an industry influencer for more than 30 years, known throughout the corporate travel community as a leader and innovator," said NBTA president and CEO Craig Banikowski. "His enthusiasm for the managed travel industry is evident at each NBTA event he attends, and we are thankful for his many contributions."

Under O'Neill's leadership, CWT's North American business has more than tripled since 2003, and his accomplishments there include the integration of both Maritz Corporate Travel and Navigant International. O'Neill was president of Maritz Corporate Travel before joining CWT. In previous roles, he led the expansion of the former Trans World Airlines' cargo operations to international markets and served as an executive team member for the former Braniff Airlines and an executive for the former Burlington Air Express.

"I'm honored and humbled, of course," O'Neill said in a statement. "It has always been about teamwork and people for me as any success I've had has been with the help of others. I'm privileged to work with great people; that includes coworkers, clients, suppliers and more. Many friends and colleagues over the years have made this business not only successful for me, but, exciting, fun and ultimately rewarding."

O'Neill also has served for more than 15 years as a member of the Business Travel News editorial board.
