Calling for Safer, Smarter and Balanced Visa Policies

European policymakers have a key role to make business travel safer and more efficient. We look forward to joining forces to ensure that business travel remains a catalyst for economic development in Europe.

For 10 years, Mike McCormick, with the support of a progressive Board of Directors and highly dedicated staff, has led the growth and globalization of GBTA. GBTA is now the world’s premier business travel and meetings organization with over 9,000 members representing $345B in annual travel spending. McCormick comes to GBTA with more than 25 years of travel industry experience, including leadership positions at such travel brands as Rosenbluth International, PhoCusWright and Travelport. Mike is an avid (frustrated) Philadelphia sports fan, a Notre Dame graduate (go Irish!) and a proud father of six children.
