CTM’s global growth drives record half year profit


Corporate Travel Management (CTM) has reported record half-year profits, buoyed by organic growth in each of its domestic and international markets. CTM’s global operations managed more than $1.7 billion in travel transactions in the past six months, a 54 per cent increase on last year’s equivalent result.

The increase was largely driven by organic growth, with 73 per cent of the $656 million lift in total transaction value coming from new client wins. Organic growth also accounted for 54 per cent of CTM’s revenue growth and 80 per cent of underlying EBITDA growth for the half year.

CTM Managing Director and founder Jamie Pherous said: “Our client-facing technology has been a contributing factor in winning market share. We continue to roll this out globally for the benefit of our clients both locally and globally.”

The company’s European operations have delivered 29 per cent growth in transactional value, and were expected to deliver an even stronger performance in the second half. Pherous said: “Europe has been instrumental in delivering new business, in order to meet clients’ expectations of a global service provider. Our focus in Europe is building a sustainable organisational structure for the long term, while delivering productivity gains through more automation.”

Headquartered in Australia, CTM is an award-winning provider of innovative and cost-effective travel management
solutions to the corporate market the company employs over 2,000 FTE staff globally and services clients across 82 cities in 53 countries globally, including owned operations across Australia, Asia, North America, Europe and New Zealand.
