Wyndham Jade Hires American Express Veteran Joanne Haidvogl
Company Welcomes 28-Year AE Professional as Business Travel Continues to Rebound
Wyndham Jade’s travel fulfillment services continue to experience growth as business travel bounces back from its 2009 low. In response to this growth, Wyndham Jade has hired Joanne Haidvogl, a 28-year veteran of American Express, to help manage its healthy client base and support three newly acquired business travel accounts.
“Wyndham Jade’s unique culture fosters teamwork, accountability and an open communication process that ultimately leads to unparalleled customer service at every level for our client partnerships.”
According to Travel Effect’s 2013 research report, The Role of Business Travel in the U.S. Economic Recovery, business travel plays a major role in a company’s strategy – greater success signing new customers and closing deals at in-person meetings, plus offering excellent opportunities for top-performing employees to emerge. Increased travel spending translates to increased profits, with a nearly 3-to-1 return on profits reported for every dollar spent on travel.
Companies that use Wyndham Jade as their business travel partner see 20 percent savings on average. Since business travel can change at a moment’s notice, companies can rely on Wyndham Jade to handle all of their changes and cancellations 24/7.
“This is an exciting time for our company and an exciting time for the travel industry,” commented Haidvogl. “Wyndham Jade’s unique culture fosters teamwork, accountability and an open communication process that ultimately leads to unparalleled customer service at every level for our client partnerships.”
For over 30 years, Wyndham Jade has been handling business travel for everyone from Fortune 500 companies to the small business professional.
