Christopherson Business Travel Acquires Andavo Meetings & Incentives
Christopherson Business Travel has acquired Andavo Meetings & Incentives. The TMC had previously acquired Andavo’s business travel and leisure travel portfolios from owner Brenda Rivers in 2010. With the merger of the remaining business, Andavo Meetings & Incentives will join Christopherson’s meetings division, Christopherson Meetings & Events. The merged entity will conduct business under the Andavo Meetings & Incentives brand name. Mike Cameron, CEO of Christopherson, said the merger will allow for greater efficiencies and enhanced service opportunities for the meetings and events division. The combined $690 million company will employ 490 travel professionals across the country, with Cameron and Rivers working with Beth Faller, current vice president of Christopherson Meetings & Events, and Britt Robinson, vice president of Andavo Meetings & Incentives. Jobs will be provided for all current employees of each company.
