Inntel has appointed two new staff members to its business travel team as part of a renewed emphasis on the department, the result of an increase in related bookings.

The Colchester-based agency has recruited two air consultants, Tam Peppiatt and Verety Bond, whose priority will be securing best possible fares for clients and rolling out the best security measures for delegates. The rest of the business travel team have been given new positions, including the promotion of Jan Lawlor to travel team manager and promotions for two other members.

It comes during a 57 per cent rise in business travel transactions for the first quarter of the current financial year.

Sarah Shenton, business travel manager, said: "We have seen an increase in travel spend from our clients this year and, therefore, we have invested in making sure our business travel team have all the skills and knowledge required to provide the high level of service expected and more."
