Australia’s Largest Independent TMC joins the GlobalStar Network
GlobalStar Travel Management has welcomed Connections Group Australia as the latest new Partner to join the network. Connections Group Australia, the largest independent TMC in Australia, cements the steady extension of the GlobalStar footprint worldwide.
James Stevenson, CEO at GlobalStar comments: “Announcing Connections Group as our latest new Partner is proof that our strategy to deliver tangible benefits to our Partners and clients alike is working and is successful. I’m looking forward to working with the Connections Group team, and to welcoming Gary Reichenberg to the GlobalStar Board as one of our Directors. Together we will drive new business in the respective markets, deploy new technology, improve supplier deals and ensure every client enjoys consistent and excellent service for all their Australian travel requirements. Today the intimate knowledge the Connections Group team have is more valuable than ever as Australia re-opens post pandemic. There is a new way of travelling and a new breed of Travel Manager and traveller, I have no doubt that our newest Partner is perfectly placed to be part of the change our network – and industry – is embracing to both provide and support corporate clients.”
Gary Reichenberg, Founder and Director at Connections Group Australia comments: “Joining the GlobalStar network is a further demonstration of our commitment to partnering with values-aligned organisations. The strength and breadth of the network has already enabled us to play a part in securing significant new business on a global basis. I am excited about our shared opportunity to introduce a ‘Glocal’ strategy here in Australia. A strategy that optimises global knowledge and connections within a local context via our strongest asset – our people.”
“Connections Group Australia is the eighth new Partner to join our network in the last year,” adds James Stevenson. “We are seeing more and more significant travel companies from around the world looking for the ways and means of benefitting from global reach and expertise. All of our Partners are substantial, significant businesses in their home markets. Collectively our clients and our businesses benefit from greater bench strength in everything from economies of scale to new clients. It comes as no surprise to me to see in Connections Group the very same characteristics that all of our members have – intimate market knowledge, real flexibility, true agility, and the ability to work naturally and effectively at pace. In the new world of travel these skills are vital for corporates as they operate against a changing ecosystem.”
