GlobalStar Travel Management has widened its network into Italy by signing TravelDesk Business Travel Management as a partner.
Genoa-based TravelDesk is based in Genoa and was founded in 1991 with an annual turnover of €11 million.
Its 25-strong team serves more than 500 corporate clients in Italy and beyond.
James Stevenson, CEO at GlobalStar, said: “Italy is the eighth largest economy in the world. It presents a strategically important and valuable market for our business.
“In welcoming TravelDesk to the GlobalStar network, we add not only another likeminded and ambitious travel business but also critical Italian expertise in corporate travel, meetings and events and marine and offshore travel, a sector that requires expertise, significant manpower and a wealth of experience.”
Mirella Bruschi, Founder and CEO at TravelDesk, adds: “We are very proud to be the GlobalStar partner in Italy.
“Joining the network adds both strength and depth to our existing business and will help us to continue to grow TravelDesk. We are looking forward to seeing our clients benefit from greater supplier deals, technology and the knowledge that exists in the GlobalStar network.”
