Scott A. Solombrino nombrado director ejecutivo de GBTA

Alexandria, VA — The Global Business Travel Association, the voice of business travel industry, has appointed current Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer Scott A. Solombrino Chief Executive Officer following a unanimous vote by the Association’s Board of Directors.

“We are thrilled to equip our operating leader with the proper tools to guide the industry out of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic,” said Bhart Sarin, president of GBTA. “Now GBTA’s principle spokesperson will have an even stronger position to advocate for the return of business travel.”

Under Mr. Solombrino’s dedicated leadership, GBTA has built upon its strengths by replenishing its financial reserves, refocusing advocacy efforts in the United States and Europe, and strengthening relationships with members and sponsors.

“One year ago, Scott offered the Board a vision of financial security, upscaling advocacy, and a laser focus on the member; it is because of that vision that GBTA is surviving the crisis and will be there for members when we emerge to rebuild our industry,” said Dorothy Dowling, president of the GBTA Allied Leadership Council.

GBTA members can anticipate the Association will be better positioned to influence public policy and deliver positive outcomes for its buyers and sponsors.

“We are very excited to have Scott as CEO of GBTA,” says Christle Johnson, GBTA’s Chairperson of the Board.  “Scott has brought us energy, strategy, sensitivity, and proven leadership; having discussed at length, benchmarked against peer organizations, and vetted by legal counsel, the time was right to make the appointment.”
