For the seventh consecutive year since 2012, FCM Travel Solutions has been named Middle East's Leading Travel Management Company at the World Travel Awards.
Ciarán Kelly, General Manager Middle East and Africa Region attended the prestigious Middle East Gala Ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria in Ras Al Khaimah to collect the award.
Ciarán graciously accepted the accolade and said that the past 12 months had been a period of transformation for FCM’s MEA region, with expansion into five new countries, business development and innovation at the centre of FCM’s overall strategy.
“Through focussed business development, account management activity and our client success stories, FCM has achieved a strong reputation in the Middle East and Africa region as a travel partner of choice and successfully signed and re-signed several high profile clients, at both local and regional levels.”
Clients have included Coca Cola Beverages Africa, British Council for Africa, Bieresdorf Middle East (parent brand of Nivea), VW and luxury brands Prada and Dolce and Gabbana. One of the region’s largest clients Majid All Futtaim (MAF) recently re-signed a three year contract that now includes five new countries in the region.
“FCM MEA has a lot of successes to celebrate! Overall, I am very proud of our people and appreciative of those that have been working hard to grow our business in MEA last year but also planting this foundation over the last several years behind the scenes. Thank you to my team, our customers and suppliers for another incredibly successful year,” said Ciarán.
World Travel Awards celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and is acknowledged across the globe as the ultimate travel accolade. Awards are voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide and these accolades recognise the commitment to excellence FCM has demonstrated over the past 12 months.
