FCM Adds Senegal to Africa Operations
12 September, 2022
Global travel management company FCM is growing its footprint in Middle East & Africa after signing a partnership agreement with Hari Om Travels in Senegal. The addition of the West African country to the FCM network reflects FCM’s focus on strategic growth and extends its operations to 30 markets across the region. FCM's Managing Director of Middle East and Africa Ciarán Kelly explained the decision to expand operations into Senegal was driven by customer needs, while recognising considerable business development opportunities the country offers.
Senegal is without a doubt an exciting market for business travel. Not only are we seeing increasing demand from existing customers travelling to the country, prospects across the wider region are increasingly expressing strong interest for international TMC support too.
This latest venture strengthens FCM’s local representation in West Africa and builds upon a successful business relationship with Hari Om Travels, which already provides on the ground travel support for FCM clients in the Gabon and the Congo.
We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Hari Om Travels and solidify our local expertise and service offerings in Senegal while harnessing the growth potential of this dynamic country across a diverse range of sectors,” said Kelly. “Their highly experienced and knowledgeable staff complements FCM’s technology and global expertise and will be a great asset to FCM’s clients.
