FCM Appoints Jo Lloyd to Lead Global Account Management and Confirms Integration Agreement with Consulting Company Nina & Pinta
FCM, one of the world’s largest travel management companies, today announced Jo Lloyd has joined the company as Global Account Management & Consulting Director. Lloyd brings formidable capabilities and talent to lead a globally connected team servicing national and multi-national organisations in over 100 countries. Additionally, FCM has reached an integration agreement with corporate travel consulting and training firm Nina & Pinta to further strengthen the global FCM consultancy offering and range of services available to its customer base.
“Jo shares FCM’s passion for out-of-the-box thinking and isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo – we are thrilled to welcome her to the team,” said Marcus Eklund, FCM’s Managing Director. “She adds vast industry knowledge and consultancy know-how as well as an immense network in the corporate travel community, which will be invaluable to FCM’s continued growth as the world returns to travel.”
A former Partner with Nina & Pinta, Lloyd has enjoyed a productive travel industry career stretching over two decades. She has worked across a broad range of industry sectors, starting in a TMC environment before moving into airline sales and procurement. A respected independent industry consultant for 15 years, she has engaged with customers across the globe on interesting and diverse projects delivering strategy, sourcing and change management.
“FCM is a business I have long admired, and I am excited to be joining a truly unique market leader in the corporate travel space,” said Lloyd. “The world of travel has changed considerably, so as businesses begin to reopen for travel, they are faced with unique changes and challenges. I am looking forward to working with customers to support them in restarting their programmes with confidence through improved processes, guidance, and advice. I look forward to helping FCM achieve that.”
Scott Reddie, who previously led global account management for FCM, has recently relocated to the company’s Asian hub in Singapore to support rapid growth across the region. As Director of Account Management, Asia, Reddie is spearheading the development of new and existing corporate customers with a laser focus on driving expansion in China and Japan.
Alongside these appointments, FCM Consulting will be boosting an already compelling customer offering by adding an array of new services through its agreement with Nina & Pinta. This further reaffirms FCM’s strategy of continuously redefining its alternative approach to supporting corporate clients. More details will be revealed in due course.
