Held in Sydney last night as part of the 2014 btTB conference, the ATMC travel awards aim to provide encouragement to young executives under the age of 39 and the future leaders of the travel management industry. The Association of Travel Management Companies developed this initiative to encourage raising the standards in best practice travel management.
CTM’s Salv Silvera lived up to ATMC’s best practice travel management mandate being named Young Executive of the Year for 2014. The second winner of the award from CTM in as many years. Salv accepted the award saying “he was hugely honoured to accept the award in front of so many peers from CTM and the wider-industry”.
A key determining factor in Salv’s win was his work developing and deploying a Corporate Social Responsibility Framework and Training Program to create Travel Management Companies in third world countries. He was pleased by his peer’s responses to this cause saying “it was incredibly rewarding to see the concept and framework developed to train agents in developing countries to become TMCs recognised among my industry peers.”
Having only began his career with CTM mid-way through 2012 as Regional Client Value Manager in our Perth branch, it hasn’t taken Salv long to make a noticeable impact in the business. CTM’s CEO of Australia and New Zealand, Laura Ruffles couldn’t have been more proud of Salv saying “Salv’s passion across his team and the whole of CTM is tremendous and he is very deserving of this special award. He continues to excel through his knowledge, sincerity and leadership. I have no doubt he will continue to be a rising star.”
