NEXT STOP: CUSTOMS HOUSE FOR JAMIE PHEROUS

JAMIE Pherous founded Corporate Travel Management in 1994. Ever since, the company has been on the up, taking flight from its Brisbane headquarters to become the largest privately-owned travel management company in Australia.

Corporate Travel Management floated on the ASX in December 2010 following an over-subscribed IPO. Today, the company services clients in 82 cities across 53 countries and employs more than 2000 full-time equivalent staff.

Prior to establishing Corporate Travel Management, Pherous worked for Arthur Andersen (now Ernst & Young) as a chartered accountant specialising in business services and the financial consulting division in Australia, Papua New Guinea and the United Arab Emirates.

Pherous was also a major shareholder and co-founder of online hotel booking engine Quickbeds.com.au, which was sold to Flight Centre Travel Group in 2003.

Corporate Travel Management's share price is currently tracking around $13, growing a mile-a-minute since listing at $1.41 just over five years ago.

Not only a seasoned traveller, Pherous is a seasoned expert in growth and development, risk management and technology. Over the past few years, his company has gained acquisitive speed, purchasing a number of major rivals in the US, Asia and Europe, en route to stamp its spot as the number one corporate travel business on the planet.

Join Business News Australia for Brisbane Business News' Breakfast Series on Wednesday 8 June 2016 at Customs House in Brisbane, where Jamie Pherous will take the stage and share Corporate Travel Management's flight trajectory and identify the path for the company going forward.
