ASIA - The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), the voice of the global business travel industry, has formed a new advisory board for its base in Asia.
 
The new board will provide strategic direction for GBTA Asia as well as representation for the newly-formed member network.
 
The four appointments include two buyer members and two suppliers. Jenny Ng, Corporate Business Travel Manager for Procurement Asia Pacific for the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation; and Debbie Winston, Regional Head of Travel APAC for UBS AG Hong Kong will serve as buyer members. The two advisors from the supplier community are Roger Pfund, General Manager for Corporate Sales and Client Services, Asia Pacific for RADIUS and Paul Boyle, Global Business Travel Consultant for Carlson Wagonlit Travel.

“Having these experienced travel professionals guiding our efforts in Asia is a big step forward in fulfilling our ambitious education and eventsprogram in Asia,” said Welf Ebeling, GBTA Regional Director Asia.
 
“Our first tasks as a group will be to establish the roadmap for education in the region and to identify a Chairman to head up the new GBTA Asia advisory board in the long term.

"The network will be looking for further board members in the following months to be fairly represented in this ethnically and politically diverse region,” he added.
