Travel Leaders Gains Top $175.5 Million

New business travel accounts won by Travel Leaders wholly-owned and Associate (franchised) locations during  2013 totaled over $175.5 million, the group reports. Travel Leaders said this is a conservative estimate given that the data is gathered through voluntary reporting of new business by both Travel Leaders Associates and Travel Leaders Corporate on a quarterly basis. The total does  not include new business accounts won by any other Travel Leaders Group divisions or members. 

“Overall, we were pleased with the amount of new business and clientele we were able to add throughout 2013," said Travel Leaders Corporate president David Holyoke.  “From the beginning, one of Travel Leaders Corporate’s goals was to be seen as ‘Departure from the Ordinary’ in the managed travel space, and we remain committed to offering that to our clients."

Recently, Holyoke said, the group provided CFOs and top executive decision-makers with information on how travel can drive top-line business growth. "On a daily basis, we proactively work with clients to achieve further control over their travel spend, promote growth and generate cost savings, and our approach has led to five years of success. We have no doubt our growth will continue in 2014.”
