Oil and shipping travel specialist FCm Marine has appointed two new account managers, Claire McGuinness and Paul Jarvie based in Aberdeen and a new sales director, Lynne McKay in the Edinburgh office. The new appointments have been made as a result of business growth from FCm Marine’s existing client portfolio in as well as new client wins totalling £6 million since January 2010.
“We have seen a significant increase in oil and marine sector business this year in Scotland despite the fact that the economy is still in recession, and we expect this growth to continue into 2011,” commented Tracey Beveridge, FCm Travel Solutions’ operations director Scotland. “I believe this is predominantly as a result of our approach to service. Unlike our competitors we offer proactive and personalized service levels in which we consistently identify and deliver travel cost savings. This approach is underpinned by a flexible business model to create tailored solutions for clients of all sizes.”
As account manger for FCm in Aberdeen Claire McGuinness will manage a range of client corporate travel accounts each with an annual travel budget up to £1.5 million. McGuinness brings extensive hotel and business travel experience to her new role, having spent the last four years as an account manager with American Express Business Travel. Before that she worked for Millenium & Copthorne Hotels for 11 years in various roles including sales manager in Aberdeen, director of sales for Scotland, and account director business travel UK & Europe.
Also based in Aberdeen, FCm account manager Paul Jarvie will manage a portfolio of corporate clients with an annual travel spend of £200,000 to £1.5million. His responsibilities include building client relations and reviewing travel expenditure in order to be as cost effective as possible. Although relatively new to the travel industry, Jarvie gained extensive knowledge of the oil and gas industry over the last four years in his previous role as sales manager for the Copthorne Hotel Aberdeen. Prior to joining Millenium & Copthorne Hotels, Jarvie played professional football for Dundee United, Bristol City and Clyde.
Lynne McKay is returning to corporate travel as sales director responsible for FCm’s new business in Scotland after a five year stint in the healthcare industry as senior corporate sales consultant with Simplyhealth.
