The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), the voice of the global business travel industry, today announced Cornerstone Information Systems has partnered with GBTA as the inaugural Volunteer Leadership Sponsor.
Cornerstone has long supported its employees’ efforts and involvement in GBTA through the Committee structure, their local Chapters and at GBTA Convention. Cornerstone CEO Mat Orrego has also been involved in the GBTA Ladders Program since its inception as both a mentor and as part of the volunteer leadership team. “Ladders” is GBTA’s innovative, industry-wide mentoring program connecting business travel leaders with industry newcomers to facilitate collaboration and mentorship, while tackling challenges facing the future of our industry.
Through this sponsorship, Cornerstone seeks to extend that support to volunteers across business travel, and believes GBTA provides the platform to drive engagement that fosters growth and innovation in the business travel industry.
“Volunteers are the heart of GBTA – and together, help to advance the business travel industry,” said Christle Johnson, GBTA President.
“We have been committed supporters of GBTA through the years, and this Volunteer Leadership Sponsorship enables us to further our commitment,” said Mat Orrego. “We have found GBTA gives us a great opportunity to connect with our customers and have a voice in the industry. Through committees and Ladders, our team takes an active role throughout GBTA. Supporting GBTA volunteers means supporting my own team. We are thrilled to take this new sponsorship role within GBTA.”
The sponsorship includes involvement at various GBTA events throughout the year including GBTA Chapter Leadership Summit, GBTA All Committee Summit, GBTA Chapter Presidents’ Council Leadership Summit, GBTA All Committee Summit and GBTA Convention.
