Alshamel Travel announced its decision to make Dubai its regional headquarters for corporate travel services. Simultaneously, the company also unveiled its partnership with Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT).
The new unit will be headed by Rosanna Croft, director of corporate travel services, in addition to her current role as Alshamel Travel’s military and government travel services director.
The decision to move to Dubai was backed by the growing demand of corporate customers both globally and regionally. The corporate travel services unit will be supported by a Supplier Management unit.
Yousef Al-Essa, chairman of Alshamel Travel said: “This is a step in the right direction. Dubai is an ideal location to centralize our operations, as it is a regional hub for many of our multi-national and global clients. As a CWT partner in Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain, Alshamel Travel looks to offer travel management services to clients across the GCC.”
