Hogg Robinson has appointed Greg Treasure as Managing
Director of HRG Australia.
Industry veteran Carl Buerckner has chosen to
leave HRG Australia to pursue early retirement plans. He will be
succeeded as Managing Director by Greg Treasure, until recently
HRG's General Manager in Hong Kong, who brings extensive
experience to the role both from an operational perspective and
his knowledge of the Asia Pacific region.
Reporting to Kevin Ruffles, President Asia
Pacific, Treasure will be based in Melbourne from where he will
have overall responsibility for HRG Australia as well as being a
member of the Asia Pacific Regional Executive Management Team.
During his time in Hong Kong, Treasure streamlined processes to
improve efficiency and productivity whilst simultaneously
improving the quality of service to our clients. His energy was
rewarded with a high retention of both clients and staff, and in
securing new business.
Kevin Ruffles said. "While he has
been with our company, Carl has been instrumental in the formation
of HRG Australia and its evolution to the point where it became
part of Hogg Robinson plc in 1998, and under his leadership has
positioned HRG as one of the leaders in corporate travel services
companies in Australia. We would like to thank him warmly for his
contribution to the success of HRG Australia and wish him every
success for the future."
"Australia is an
important market for HRG and we are delighted to be able to
welcome Greg Treasure to his new role. His passion for the
business had a positive impact on our operation in Hong Kong and I
have no doubt that his enviable skills will bring significant
benefits to our clients, our staff and our industry partners in
Australia, leading HRG Australia to continued success," Ruffles
