We’re thrilled to announce that Sumit Gupta has been appointed as Head of Client and Supplier Management at Blue Cube Travel. We’re excited for Sumit to join the Blue Cube team and take over our client and supplier relations.
Sumit joins Blue Cube with 18 years of experience in the leisure and corporate travel industry. He spent a number of years working with Hotel Reservation Service (HRS), the global business travel company. In his most previous role, Sumit was Director of Business Development for TrustYou, a national hospitality company.
After realising there was a gap for client-side expertise, we created the new role to improve the management and strategic direction of Blue Cube Travel’s supplier relations. Sumit will take control of Blue Cube’s account management in addition to meetings, incentives, conferencing and exhibitions (MICE) business.
With guidance from Bex Deadman, recently promoted Managing Director, Sumit will represent the company as a member of the Business Travel Association’s Hotel and Apartment Strategy Group.
Bex is thrilled to have Sumit on board: “I am delighted that Sumit has joined Blue Cube taking over responsibility for this area of our business. His knowledge of the hotel sector, supplier relations and account management will be invaluable in supporting our expansion and driving new processes.”
Speaking about his appointment to the position, Sumit comments: “I’m excited to join Blue Cube, as it is such a well-respected, successful and dynamic independent travel management company. I am looking forward to working closely with our account managers to redefine and enhance our account management offering, as well as supporting the sales department in growing Blue Cube’s client portfolio.”
Blue Cube Travel has great things in the pipeline for 2020. We’re excited to be able to deliver an even better service now Sumit is in the team.
