BCD Travel named ‘Most Admired Travel Management Company’ for third year in a row

Utrecht, Netherlands, 1 October 2015 – BCD Travel has been named 2015 Most Admired Travel Management Company for the third year running. Presented by The Beat, a widely popular business travel newsletter published by Northstar Travel Media, the 8th Annual Beat Readers’ Choice Awards reflect the results of a readers’ poll conducted earlier this year.

The poll asked what company in each of the 6 supplier segments (airline, hotel, car rental, TMC, tech provider, payment system) they “most admire for its policies, management style and service for business clients.”

The Beat’s readers include those working in the business travel industry from corporations, TMCs, airlines, hotels, global distribution systems, technology providers, car rental firms, payment systems, consultants, financial analysts and media.

“Amassing more 'Most Admired’ votes than our larger competitors would be a measure of our success in any year; winning Most Admired TMC 3 years in a row demonstrates that excellence in customer service is deeply ingrained in our corporate culture from top to bottom,” said BCD Travel President and CEO John Snyder. “Coming in the same year that Forbes magazine named us among America’s Best Employers 2015, The Beat’s recognition supports our view that BCD Travel is not only the best TMC for clients; it’s also the best TMC in the industry to work.”
