Hello, I’m Chris, one of 1000 Mile Travel Group’s dedicated Travel Experts.
I’m a corporate travel expert with over 20 years of industry experience.
A love of travel was first sparked on a family trip to Thailand as a child and after 8 years working in FMCG (Woolworths), in 2002 I saw a job advert for Flight Centre, took the chance and the rest is history!
I have spent the last 20 years gaining a wealth of industry knowledge with various TMCs working across sectors including mining (resources and oil & gas), marine, finance and engineering. I now run my own business, partnering with 1000 MTG, assisting businesses to get the most out of their travel program.
1000 Mile are affiliated with buying group Helloworld Business Travel, our clients have access to the best global corporate hotel rates and airfares on offer. Partnering with 1000 mile also gives me (my business) access to the best in travel technology; including OBT and market leading reporting functions allowing detailed analysis to save clients time and money.
My approach to my customers is simple, to incorporate my extensive travel expertise with outstanding customer service to become an extension of their business function. I know the value in the service I provide and when combined with the flexibility of running my own business I am able to provide tailored solutions that add real value to my clients’ business.
On a personal level, I love working in travel! Being able to share my knowledge with clients and assist them with what they need, after 20 years in the industry, that feeling of achievement when you get a win for a client never goes away.
