BSI Appoints Head of Development for Public Sector
20 July 2009
BSI has announced the appointment of Steve Savage as Head of Business Development Public Sector. This new appointment is reflective of the growing requirements for BSI’s specialist accommodation, meetings and event management solutions within the public sector.
In a move which follows recent account wins and inclusion in significant public sector framework agreements, Steve will be responsible for managing all of BSI’s public sector business whilst also securing new business growth.
This key position further demonstrates BSI’s commitment to providing dedicated and bespoke account management and development for its wide ranging clients and market sectors and in this case, to a sector which is totally unique in its requirements.
Steve joins BSI following more than thirty years in the travel industry. Just under half of this was heavily focussed on providing account management and development services to the public sector with Carlson Wagonlit and more recently, Expotel.
Steve stated: “I have been astounded by BSI’s technology, focus on customer service and the ‘can do’ attitude that is culturally embedded. BSI is committed to the delivery of tailored services and effective account management and development within the public sector, achieved by a balanced combination of skilled teams with forward thinking technological solutions and excellent supplier relationships. This ultimately results in being able to bring cost reduction and added value to the table.”
Commenting on Steve’s appointment to the BSI team, BSI Group Managing Director Trevor Elswood commented: “With BSI’s public sector business growing rapidly, Steve’s new role is critical in managing and developing these accounts, ensuring we provide a first class service and best value pricing whilst meeting the sector’s CSR and traveller security agendas. Steve will be pivotal in shaping our bespoke public sector offering, ensuring BSI is the hotel and meetings specialist of choice for the sector both, local and national”
