Corporate Traveller (CT) has established two new roles within the businesses’ global structure. Amanda Vining has been appointed Chief Sales & Customer Officer globally and Chris Lynes has been named President of Corporate Traveller for the Americas.
Based in Boston, Vining will be responsible for developing scalable models to ensure that sales, retention, and growth targets are achieved across the CT business globally. She began her career as a Business Development Manager with CT, consistently achieving top sales both within the USA and globally. Her subsequent roles include Sales Team Leader, National Sales Leader and, most recently, President of Corporate Traveler USA.
Lynes will be responsible for the continued evolution of the Americas regional business, in addition to developing CT’s new “glocal” structure. The Toronto-based executive is a 21-year veteran of the Flight Centre Travel Group where he has held leadership roles throughout the business including Area Leader, Brand Leader, and most recently as Senior Vice President Corporate Brands in Canada.
Both appointments are effective immediately, and Vining and Lynes will report jointly to Tom Walley, the newly announced Global Managing Director of Corporate Traveller, and Charlene Leiss, President of Flight Centre Travel Group, Americas.
