nuTravel Expands Organization, Branches into Growing Markets
Independent Airline and Corporate Groups Created to Further Company’s Vision
Purchase, New York – July 25, 2015 – nuTravel, provider of the corporate travel industry’s most reliable and flexible booking solutions, today announced the formation of an Airline Solutions Group. Meanwhile, the travel technology company will continue to execute its corporate online booking strategy via a newly-designated Corporate Solutions Group. nuTravel CEO Carmine Carpanzano will continue to lead the company but will also serve as the head of the Airline Solutions Group, while Rich Miller will take on the role of Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Corporate Solutions Group.
“As a company we have been providing airline solutions since 2012, however, we have been preparing to formalize this core competency over the last twelve months,” Carpanzano said. “Our online booking and airline businesses have grown at such a rapid pace that we felt the best thing would be to create separate groups that would allow our teams to better focus on their specific clients and objectives. With Air Canada as our first client and the recent additions of JetBlue and WestJet, the timing couldn’t be better as in discussions with several other major airlines. We are also fortunate to have an industry veteran like Rich Miller who can step in and continue to drive adoption of our Enterprise booking platform.”
Previously, Miller spent thirty-three years with American Express where he led the development of their corporate online booking platform. He has served on the nuTravel board for four years, and has been employed as nuTravel’s Chief Strategy Officer for the last three.
“nuTravel has built a reputation for being client-focused and extremely responsive,” said Miller. “We see that as a competitive advantage we want to maintain so we are evolving our team structure accordingly. “Not only will we be able to preserve our excellent service levels, but we will be able to focus on identifying and delivering solutions that exceed customer expectations more quickly.”
Solution delivery is the main reason nuTravel recently added Damar Christopher to the management team. Formerly of GDSX and Concur, Christopher brings a commitment to customer service and a disciplined approach to executing on nuTravel objectives. As Vice President of Product & Customer Solutions, he will lead efforts to understand client needs and industry trends while advancing nuTravel products and services correspondingly.
The nuTravel team will be available to answer questions in person during the exposition hours of the 2015 GBTA Convention in Orlando, Florida, July 27-29, at booth #1665.
