Recently we announced that long-serving senior leader Tom Walley will take the reins as the new Global Managing Director of SME specialist division Corporate Traveller. Having started with FCTG over two decades ago, Tom has worked across the company’s corporate and leisure divisions in both the UK and Australia, primarily in management roles, and he will also retain his current position of General Manager for Corporate Traveller in Australia.

“I’ve been a passionate advocate for this fantastic brand for more than 10 years and I’m delighted to move into a role that will focus on Corporate Traveller being a leader for SMEs, not just in Australia, but across the globe,” says Tom.

“We already have an incredibly strong basis with more than 1,500 team members globally across all sectors and we’re the dominant player in the SME travel space in Australia with over 4,000 customers, and more than 16,000 globally.”


Success has been at the very core of Walley’s stewardship with dozens of new customers boarding Corporate Traveller in recent years, resulting in multi-million-dollar deals. This has been complemented by a strong Net Promoter Score that has always sat well above the ‘world-class’ standard of 80 per cent.

“We have an ambitious target of welcoming $1 billion (USD) of new customers in the 2023 financial year globally and there are three things that will help us achieve this goal – our people, the great service they provide, and our investment in technology,” he said.

“This is complemented by our culture because we believe in putting our people first, giving them ownership, then relying on them and their entrepreneurial skills to deliver the most outstanding customer service – we automate the simple so our people can shine in the complex."

CEO Corporate Travel Chris Galanty said Tom was the perfect candidate to navigate Corporate Traveller through the post-pandemic world and beyond.

“Tom is incredibly well-known across the business as he’s one of our most experienced senior leaders, having held senior positions in both Australia and the UK for over a decade,” said Chris.

“Tom has been a key member of the team that has created a highly successful strategy in the Australian market over the last two years and he is determined to see Corporate Traveller become the global category leader in SME business travel.

“Corporate Traveller is very customer-centric, and our people have been the driver of its success for many years. Tom’s new role will further our ability to offer the best service, products, and technology possible.”
