CWT appoints Nick Vournakis to head-up newly expanded Global Customer Group

CWT, the B2B4E travel management platform, today announces the appointment of Nick Vournakis as head of the CWT Global Customer Group. This newly expanded position will encompass his existing responsibilities as President of CWT Sato Travel, CWT’s military and government division, as well as assuming responsibility for all of CWT’s global customer accounts.

Under the title of Managing Director Global Customer Group, and taking effect from 1 July 2020, Nick will continue to report to Kelly L. Kuhn, CWT’s Chief Customer Officer.

Current Global Customer Group lead, Cathy Voss, will be appointed to a new role of Senior Strategic Advisor, as she transitions towards retirement, having handed over to Nick. With effect from 1 July 2020, in her new position, she will support strategic commercial initiatives for the customer organization, and continue to report to Kelly L. Kuhn.

“Nick has an outstanding track record of supporting customers and delivering incredible results across some of the most complex and specialized travel programs imaginable. The breadth of his experience across two decades at CWT, provides an exciting platform for this new position,” said Kelly L. Kuhn. “Cathy is also a rock star, and having worked here for 35 years has finally persuaded me to agree to her retirement ambitions, so it is with elation, tinged with a bit of sadness, that I wish them both every success in their new roles.”

In his 20 years with CWT, and prior to running CWT Sato Travel, Nick has held a variety of senior leadership roles across the business including SVP General Manager CWT Canada, SVP Global Marketing, and VP Solutions Group Worldwide. A graduate of Miami University, he is also a former Manager of the Ernst & Young Consulting Strategy Practice.
