Trevor Elswood, chief commercial officer, Capita Travel and Events, said: “Our customers are impressed with the specialist way in which we manage their travel and meetings programmes. And as many of those companies globalise with overseas office locations, they want in-market specialists in key International regions, without compromising on the value of using our expertise for the significant UK market.
