FCm Travel Solutions Celebrates 10 Years of Growth and Success

September 22, 2014

FCm Travel Solutions' global network is celebrating the company's 10th anniversary!

Travel teams throughout FCm's global network, which spans 89 countries, will this week be reflecting on 10 years of growth and milestones.

Recognised as the fifth largest travel management company in the world, FCm is the flagship global corporate travel brand of the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG). The business travel provider employs more than 6,500 staff across travel and account management, sales and support roles.

FCm's Global Leader Gregory Lording, said he was proud to be working within a company that valued its employees, was always focused on the customer and maintained a progressive attitude to change.

"Our people and our customers are at the heart of everything we do... and even though we have our eye on where we need to be in another 10 years and the technology we'll need to service our customers by 2024, it is the people who work within the company that play a major role in carrying us forward," Mr Lording said.

FCm’s New Zealand leader, Andy Jack, said the business was continuing to make exceptional progress locally and would like to thank the FCm team for delivering outstanding solutions, both to the business and clients.

“FCm is continuing to grow its business and achieve great outcomes for our clients, despite increasing competition in the corporate travel market. We’re committed to delivering ongoing value and travel savings to our clients both locally and globally and look forward to continuing this success over the next ten years.”

A small snapshot of FCm's milestones from the past decade include:
- Major acquisitions for FCm as part of FCTG including China Comfort Travel Co Ltd in Beijing, Friends Globe Travels Limited India, Bannockburn Travel Management Chicago, Garber Travel Service Inc Boston, Air Services International Singapore and Travelplan Corporate Limited Dublin;
- Being named by the World Travel Awards the 'World's Leading Travel Management Company' for three consecutive years;
