He built the company from its headquarters in Brisbane to become the largest privately-owned travel management company in Australia and, in late 2010, became successfully listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). Today, the company employs more than 2,000 FTE staff and services clients in 53 countries around the world.
