(Morges, Switzerland – 16th June) FESTIVE ROAD, the global consultancy on a mission to #CreateBetter travel and meetings management, announced today that Marc Zuber is the latest industry expert to join the organisation. Marc has joined a team which leads a diverse set of projects for travel buyers, including defining travel category strategies, assessing managed travel programmes and leading TMC sourcing activities.
Marc joins FESTIVE ROAD following a 30-year career at Nestlé Group which saw him undertake a variety of roles, most recently as Global Travel Category Lead. While there, Marc gained extensive experience in managing a complex corporate travel programme and completely transformed the category – moving it from operational and locally led to a strategic, global category. Marc has also held roles in finance and audit, and has lived and worked in South America in addition to his home country of Switzerland.
Marc has played a leading role in various industry associations, including the Association of Swiss Travel Management (ASTM), the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) and been a participant member of IATA’s Travel Manager Advisory Group (TMAG) since its inception.
“Marc is an innovative, passionate and transformational leader,” shared FESTIVE ROAD Managing Partner Caroline Strachan. “His extensive knowledge of procurement in the travel industry makes him an incredible asset to the clients we serve, as he’s truly walked in their shoes in a significant way.”
Zuber added, “FESTIVE ROAD’s vison of future travel category opportunities and strategic thinking are unique and inspiring. Joining such a passionate and knowledgeable team on this transformational journey is a fantastic opportunity. I look forward to contributing to FESTIVE ROAD’s efforts to reshape the future of the corporate travel ecosystem.”
