GBTA Honors BCD Travel’s Torsten Kriedt with Luoma Award

December 18, 2017 Accolades No Comments Email Email
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) – the voice of the global business travel industry – recently honored Torsten Kriedt, Vice President for Product Strategy and Innovation at BCD Travel, with the prestigious Luoma Award.

 Gehan Colliander, Chair of the GBTA Europe Advisory Board, presented the award during GBTA Conference 2017 Frankfurt in partnership with VDR last month.

GBTA established the Luoma Award in 2011 in honor of Jutta Luoma, the Executive Director of the Finnish Business Travel Association. The Award recognizes a volunteer who supports the development of GBTA and its local market partners in Europe. That person works in the best interests of GBTA members in Europe and the business travel industry. The individual is independent-minded, willing to raise new ideas within the sector both publicly and privately, and effective in providing direction for European travel and meetings management.

“These are significant thresholds,” said Colliander of the award. “I am pleased to honor my European Advisory Board colleague Torsten Kriedt with this year’s Luoma Award. Torsten has been an outstanding contributor to GBTA in Europe.”

Kriedt has served as an active member of the GBTA Europe Regional Advisory Board since 2014. He is also a regular contributor to GBTA conferences and was a key contributor on the re-launch of the GBTA Managed Travel Index benchmarking toolkit.
