Event management agency, Capita Travel and Events, has appointed Paul Boyle as Chief Executive Officer, six months after he joined the company as Chief Operating Officer.
Boyle will take up his new post on 1 January 2014. He succeeds James Parkhouse, who has been promoted to Executive Director of Capita’s workplace services division, which includes Capita Travel and Events.
Boyle aims to build on the company’s success following the recent integration of Capita Business Travel, BSI, Expotel and Venues Events Management.
“Capita Travel and Events brings together the specialist management of travel, accommodation, meetings and events procurement, all underpinned by integrated technology, expertise and security of scale,” says Boyle. “Whether customers choose rail and hotels, travel and meetings, or any combination, we provide trusted proven knowledge through one coherent solution.
“Our business reflects a changing approach to procurement of travel and meetings, and procurement managers are increasingly responsible for both categories. I am delighted to be leading this innovative and successful company,” he adds.
Boyle has almost 20 years of global agency experience, the last 12 of which were at executive management level for Carlson Wagonlit Travel.
