Apr 21, 2011

OTTAWA, Canada – target="_blank">UNIGLOBE The Premier Travel Group was chosen as the international travel management company to handle target="_blank">Ciena, global enterprise networking specialist, business travel in 30 countries centrally from its Ottawa, Canada, office with regional support from other UNIGLOBE travel management companies in the United States, Central and South America, the United Kingdom, and Asia Pacific.

UNIGLOBE The Premiere Travel Group, with offices in Ottawa and Toronto, has been an independently-owned and operated franchise of UNIGLOBE Travel International since 1985 and specializes in business, sports and adventure, and vacation travel planning. “We serviced the regional Ciena office locally until the company made a decision to consolidate its business travel operations globally,” said owner Zul Shaikhali. “We had to start from square one and faced competition from travel management companies worldwide to win the account. I applaud the efforts of our business development team in Ottawa and our international UNIGLOBE partners who showed we could deliver on a global scale.”

UNIGLOBE Travel International Senior Vice President of Global Development John Henry credits the collaborative culture of UNIGLOBE travel management companies for attracting a growing number of multinational account inquiries. “We truly are a global family and it shows,” said Henry. “Congratulations to Zul and the UNIGLOBE team internationally on earning this prestigious travel management contract.”
