Chambers gets £10m business wins in 3 months

Chambers Travel Management has added 15 new clients with a combined annual spend of more than £10 million in the past three months.

The travel management company said the recent “significant” spike in sales wins means it has closed over £35 million in additional sales over the past 12 months.

Chambers said the 15 companies all operate in the UK and Europe, with budgets from £50,000 to £5 million.

Around 40 per cent of new business is from SMEs or companies with an annual travel spend of up to £1 million, including motorcycle manufacturer, Kawasaki, and digital training specialist, Decoded.

The TMC said the new business has prompted it to develop a “tailored” service offered specifically for clients in this segment, which will be launched later this month at The Business Travel Show.

Chambers VP for business development Daniel Von Weihe, said: “We continue to expand at a steady rate with significant additional business taken on throughout our current financial year. 

“However new client wins have moved up a gear in recent months following a strategic review of sales operation last August, when Chambers invested heavily in high calibre staff appointments and improved CRM technology to focus more effectively on our growth markets. 

"The increased activity has also led to expansion plans, with a sales manager in Scotland joining in January and recruitment underway to add an additional four positions to the team,” he said.

Chambers won Best Business Travel Management Company (£50 - 200 million UK annual sales) at the 2015 Business Travel Awards.

In December, Corporate Travel Management (CTM) acquired Chambers Travel in a deal worth up to £39 million over three years.
