Two years ago Christopherson Business Travel and Andavo Travel began a merger process, which formed the nation’s 14th largest travel management company.
We are pleased to announce that this process has now resulted in a fully merged company with consolidated ownership and branding. Effective June 1st, we will be operating our entire corporate travel management division under the name, Christopherson Business Travel.
As we emerge a single company, we want to ensure our Andavo Travel clients that the same travel advisors, account managers, and operations staff which they have come to know and trust will continue to service their travel needs. However, they will now enjoy the benefit of vast resources and tools of our combined operation and our integrated proprietary technologies.
We will continue to operate our leisure travel division and our independent contractor division under the Andavo name.
Brenda Rivers built the Andavo Travel business over the past eighteen years and we are proud of the legacy, people and value proposition she has established. We have been partners for the past two years and I have now purchased her interest in the corporate and leisure travel divisions of the company. Brenda will retain ownership of the Andavo Meetings and Incentives (AMI) division.
