CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, has appointed Joel Hanson as Senior Director of Global Innovation Business Development. In this leadership role within CWT’s Global Supply Chain Partners team, Joel will serve as the steward for CWT’s innovation process and will be responsible for incubating, building and delivering industry-leading products and services to optimize CWT’s client and their traveler’s end-to-end travel experience.
