Europcar creates dedicated Business Travel Team Anita Jarratt takes the helm as Business Travel Manager

Demonstrating its commitment to the business travel sector, Europcar, Europe’s leading vehicle rental organisation, has created a dedicated business travel team with Anita Jarratt leading the team as Business Travel Manager.  

The new team, comprising experienced Account Managers, Sales Support and Telesales Executives will be responsible for promoting Europcar’s newly strengthened and enhanced proposition for business travellers, travel organisers and business travel agents, following the acquisition of National Car Rental in 2007. 

Anita has been working in the car rental industry for sixteen years, including six years at Europcar and will draw upon her experiences to lead her team as they further strengthen the business’ relationships with existing customers and develop new business opportunities. 

Anita moves into the role from Account Manager in the Replacement sector where she was responsible for the account management of Europcar’s Corporate Customers.  She will report to David McNeill, Corporate Sales Director. 

“The creation of this team ensures we will have a dedicated focus on the needs of our business travel customers.  Anita not only brings sound experience of the business travel sector but has a great ability to nurture customer relationships in what is a highly competitive, price driven market.  It is these skills that really made Anita the obvious choice for the role of Business Travel Manager.” comments David McNeill.   

Anita concludes “I am delighted to have been appointed to this position at what is a very exciting time for our business as we go from strength to strength in the UK and across Europe.  Europcar has a powerful proposition to business travellers and my team will ensure that message comes across loud and clear to our customers, giving them the expert support they need to meet their transport demands.”
