Travel management company FCM has appointed Jo Lloyd as global account management and consulting director. Lloyd was previously a partner at business travel consultancy Nina & Pinta, with which FCM has reached an integration agreement to bolster its existing consultancy offering.
Lloyd has an extensive business travel background across the TMC environment, airline sales and latterly as an independent industry consultant working with the likes of the Business Travel Association, the Institute of Travel Management and hotel group IHG.
FCM said that, other than the appointment of Lloyd, there will be no immediate changes to the Nina & Pinta business, although the TMC intends to “maximize benefits for both operations and take advantage of their shared expertise.” Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“She adds vast industry knowledge and consultancy know-how as well as an immense network in the corporate travel community, which will be invaluable to FCM’s continued growth as the world returns to travel,” FCM managing director Marcus Eklund said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Scott Reddie, who previously led global account management for FCM, has relocated to the organization's Asian hub in Singapore to support growth across the region, with a particular focus on expansion in China and Japan.
