ARC reports that its president and CEO, Mike Premo, is now a member of the U.S. Council of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE). Premo, who accepted ACTE’s invitation to join its council, will help support its mission to attract new members, advise internal committees and identify potential sources for local sponsorships—among other duties.
Premo said, “ARC has long operated behind the scenes in supporting the needs of the corporate buyer community by enabling access to efficient, accurate air ticketing and settlement via the travel management companies we accredit. Now that products based on ARC’s extensive data repository are being made available to corporate buyers, the time is right to engage with organizations like ACTE who are so essential in driving the industry’s education and direction. I look forward to contributing my experience and insight to support ACTE’s U.S. Council goals.”
The U.S. Council is an integral part of ACTE, a 26-year-old global organization that focuses on how corporate travel is conducted. The council is comprised of members representing diverse geographical markets throughout the United States. Membership is drawn from executive-level leaders in the travel industry from more than 100 countries.
