The Institute of Travel Management (ITM) has appointed Scott Davies as its new CEO, who will take over from Simone Buckley at the start of October.

Davies has more than 18 years’ experience in the business travel sector and has served on the ITM board of directors for two years.

He was most recently UK director of client management UK at HRG, and previous roles include commercial director at Amadeus and vice-president of UK sales at Virgin Atlantic.

ITM Chairman Karen Hutchings said; “We were looking for someone who could continue the evolution of the association from the strong platform that has been created to date.

“We are delighted to have someone in Scott who has both the depth of knowledge and the energy and enthusiasm to achieve these goals. Scott really understands ITM and its members and the challenges that the association and the industry will face over the coming years.”

Davies added: “I am delighted to accept the role. I found my time as a board director incredibly rewarding and have always been an advocate for ITM.

“I feel passionate about this opportunity and am looking forward to building upon Simone’s success, and leading the association in the next exciting phase of its journey.”
