U.Okay. journey administration firm Grey Dawes Group has acquired Florida-based Categorical Journey, a transfer that “closes the circle” on the TMC’s follow-the-sun service technique, based on Grey Dawes Group CEO Suzanne Horner.
The acquisition, which closed on Friday, is Grey Dawes’ thirteenth so far and brings Grey Dawes’ worker depend to about 300 and annual gross income to greater than £350 million, the TMC reported. Monetary phrases of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Earlier this month, Grey Dawes launched its North American operations, together with appointing Michel Botbol as president of Grey Dawes USA and Carolann Martini as chief buyer officer, each primarily based in New York. With the acquisition of Categorical Journey, Grey Dawes will be capable of supply “a seamless private service” with “a shared know-how platform” for shoppers across the clock globally, based on Horner.
“Our shoppers more and more need world options, even the smaller ones,” she mentioned in a press release. “We have been very profitable choosing up companies within the U.Okay. and integrating them. Now, we’re doing that abroad, earlier this yr in Australia and now in America.”
Categorical Journey, included in 1989, serves each company and leisure shoppers and is among the many largest Hispanic-owned firms in the USA, based on the corporate. Categorical Journey managing companions Olga Ramudo and Cristina Jacomino will stick with the corporate following the acquisition, turning into Grey Dawes’ SVP for Florida and Latin America and director of luxurious journey, respectively.
