KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 (Bernama) -- CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, has announced that Michelle McKinney Frymire has decided to step down from her roles at the Company. 

As part of the Company’s long-term succession planning process, the Board of Directors has appointed President and Chief Commercial Officer Patrick Andersen as its next President and Chief Executive Officer, effective May 1.

He will also serve on the Company’s Board of Directors, according to a statement.

“We are excited that Patrick will serve as our next CEO, given his outstanding track record as Chief Commercial Officer and 13 years in international leadership roles at CWT,” said Chair of the CWT Board, Jim Abrahamson.

“He has deep-rooted relationships with our customers and stakeholders and has demonstrated superb leadership through overseeing our strategic priorities, expanding RoomIt, and launching our groundbreaking myCWT China technology platform.

“On behalf of the Board and our global colleagues, we thank Michelle for her many contributions since she joined the Company in 2019 and wish her well in her next endeavours.”

Meanwhile, McKinney Frymire said: “Leading CWT through such a critical phase in its evolution has been a great honour. Now, with a strong financial foundation in place, CWT is positioned to accelerate its growth plan and I’m pleased to pass the baton to Patrick.”

“I’m delighted and honoured to lead CWT to its next stage of growth. As travel demand increases, CWT is well positioned to invest in and expand its industry leadership and global relationships,” said Andersen.

“Importantly, I’ll continue our commitment to our core values and look forward to working with our Board and the CWT team to enhance our technology, and further strengthen the travel and events services we provide to our customers around the world.”

Prior to his role as President and Chief Commercial Officer, Andersen served as Chief Strategy Officer and before that President of the Americas. He has over 30 years’ experience in global travel & logistics, with various international leadership roles at Deutsche Post Worldwide and DHL.
