In an effort to further strengthen the technology capabilities of its world-wide network, FCm Travel Solutions has appointed a new global leader for technology.

Taking on the global leadership role is FCms current chief information officer (CIO) for USA, John Morhous. As part of his role John will retain his responsibilities as CIO for the companys USA business and will also oversee the future development and integration of FCms global technology platforms, product and customer offering.

Considered one of the companys most experienced technology experts, John will be focused on creating greater global coordination and technology consistency between FCms regional businesses in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Americas and Asia Pacific.

John will be working closely with FCms regional leaders as well as the different business divisions within FCm and parent company Flight Centre Limited to achieve a more streamlined approach to the companys technology offering for the corporate travel market.

As FCms USA CIO and global technology leader, John will take ownership of the development of FCms global strategy, management, project execution, product delivery as well as maintaining industry relationships with key partners.

John also played a key role in the integration of technology systems following the acquisition of Boston-based corporate travel provider Garber's Travel Services Inc by Flight Centre Limited's USA subsidiary, Flight Centre USA Holding Corp.

This is a very exciting step for me professionally and personally. I see it as a natural progression and extension of my current role. Because FCm is one of the largest corporate travel providers in the US market, I have spent quite a bit of time working with the companys global technology platforms, John said. I have a solid understanding of what our current capabilities are and already have a clear vision of where I would like to take the company with the help and input of our regional businesses and partners ... The growth of technology in the corporate travel sector has been phenomenal over the past few years and I believe that with greater global coordination well be in the best position to not only move with the market but to give our clients what they need and want from a technology and online perspective.

Based in Boston, John will continue to report to FCm USA president John Beauvais and FCm global leader Gregory Lording.
