Business travel firm CTI has bolstered its sales team with four new recruits to support a new phase of growth.

James Draper from travel management company HRG and Bethany Palmer from Corporate Traveller have joined the Manchester-based business together with two new graduates.

Draper was previously a specialist in professional services at HRG, and will be based at CTI’s head office, operating across manufacturing and retail professional services.

Palmer joins from her previous role as business development manager for Corporate Traveller.

She will be based in London and responsible for growing CTI’s presence across southern England.

CTI has also hired Roisin Corbett as a bid writer for the sales team and Charles Frinault as a sales executive dedicated to promoting the company to SME clients.

These new appointments complete the sales team, joining sales partnership manager Amy Hogarth and head of sales Matthew Adderley.

Chief executive Clive Wratten said: “A driven and hugely talented sales force has been at the heart of CTI’s success over the past three decades, and we are very excited about the impact our new colleagues will have on our next phase of growth under new ownership.

“We are also pleased to be appointing new roles based at different hubs across our UK network.”
