LOCOMOTE REBRANDS TO DRIVE UK EXPANSION

MELBOURNE-BASED corporate travel platform Locomote is gearing up for its expansion to the UK under a new name.

Travelport Locomote has appointed a new leadership team to tackle the UK market in coming months, as well drive growth for its suite of products to manage business travel.

It follows Travelport's investment in a majority stake of the business last year, which now forms part of Travelport Digital.

The business has also relocated to a larger head office at Queens Road.

Travelport Locomote CEO Sandra McLeod says the new name reflects the strength of the partnership and future direction.

"I am very excited by the plans we have in place to grow our offering and expand into new territories and feel confident that, with the leadership of our new management team, we will be well placed to achieve our goals," McLeod says.

"Our focus remains unchanged. We will continue to deliver the very best solution for corporations and their employees, delivering experiences that redefine corporate travel.

"Over the last year, Travelport Locomote has experienced encouraging adoption, and we've signed strategic partnerships with world leading enterprises including insurance providers, expense management and more."

The team will introduce a series of products to streamline corporate travel, including capability to self-serve using mobile devices.

McLeod says the combination of new technology and experienced travel industry leaders will ensure the group's long-term success.

"The corporate travel industry is changing rapidly, driven by a shift in travellers' expectations as well as a demand for technology to address companies' need for increasingly efficient business solutions," she says.

"Our focus over the next 12 months will be on building on our success in the Australian market, continuing to grow our team and remaining laser focused on continually enhancing our product.

"It's an exceptionally exciting time to not just be part of the global travel industry, but to play a part in redefining it."
