FORMER US NAVY CHIEF JOINS CORPORATE TRAVEL BOARD
5 February 2014,
RETIRED United States Navy Admiral Robert J. Natter (pictured) has joined the board of Corporate Travel Management (ASX:CTD) as a non-executive director.
Engaged as a consultant to CTD since September, the former Commander in Chief of the US Atlantic Fleet is already familiar with the business.
Chairman Tony Bellas says Natter’s experience in the US market will be invaluable for the company.
“Admiral Natter’s high ethical standards as well as his passion and expertise are closely aligned with CTM’s vales, business operations and growth aspirations,” says Bellas.
“Importantly, Admiral Natter also brings a deep understanding of the corporate and government sectors at both national and regional levels in the US.”
Retiring from active military service a decade ago, Natter has served on a number of USA boards and advisory panels in both the corporate and government fields.
He is non-executive chairman of G4S Government Solutions and a non-executive director of BAE Systems Inc.
Natter is also chairman of the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association as well as non-executive director of the National U.S. Navy SEAL Museum.
CTD is trading up 1.17 per cent at $5.170 this morning.
