Larkin will be responsible for leading Locomote’s growth; assisting clients to transform their travel program, and providing them with tailored technology solutions to organise their corporate travel.
Most recently, Larkin was a procurement consultant at BPO consulting firm Infosys Portland, where she was responsible for delivering expertise in sourcing, implementations and efficiency improvement for corporate travel.
With travel industry experience spanning ten years, Sarah brings an abundance of market expertise and proficiency to Locomote.
“Technology innovation in consumer travel has progressed rapidly in recent decades,” said Larkin.
“By comparison, the corporate world has been slow to deliver improvements, offering inefficient processes designed on ageing technology platforms.
“Locomote has built an incredible product that redesigns the travel landscape to meet the demands of the corporate world. I’m thrilled to join the team and support companies in reducing the unnecessary costs of business travel,” said Larkin.
CEO of Locomote, Philip Weinman, said that the time had come for the business world to fix how it approaches travel.
“There’s no reason booking your next business trip should be harder than booking your next holiday.
“Sarah brings with her a wealth of experience and we are looking forward to working with her to help more companies around the world realise just how much efficiency and cost savings they can make by using a smart tool like Locomote to manage all their travel requirements,” said Weinman.
Locomote is redesigning the company travel landscape through an easy-to-use solution that gives organisations complete control and visibility of every aspect of their business travel.
While many businesses still use complex, laborious processes to organise business travel — some are even stuck doing it all over email & spreadsheets — Locomote simplifies booking, duty of care, budget, authorisations, claim of expenses, and more, from any browser or mobile device, anywhere in the world.
