GBTA ramps up Asia presence

HAVING set up Asian offices in Bangkok and Hong Kong recently, the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) has now formed an Advisory Board for Asia to provide strategic direction for GBTA Asia.

The four appointments include two buyer members, Jenny Ng, corporate business travel manager, Procurement Asia Pacific for Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp, and Debbie Winston, regional head, Travel APAC, for UBS Hong Kong.

The two supplier members are Roger Pfund, general manager of corporate sales and client services, Asia-Pacific, RADIUS, and Paul Boyle, global business travel consultant, Carlson Wagonlit Travel.

Welf Ebeling, regional director, GBTA Asia, said: “Our first tasks as a group will be to establish the roadmap for education in the region and to identify a chairman to head up the new GBTA Asia advisory board in the long term.”

More members will also be appointed to the board later.
