Denise Truso, global travel manager for PayPal, has been elected president of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA). Mark Cuschieri, global head of travel for UBS, will serve as vice president. GBTA elected eight new members to its global board of directors all told. Suzanne Neufang, CEO of GBTA, said that in this election, for the first time ever, both buyer and supplier members could vote for all seats. And for the first time, said Neufang, nearly 30% of eligible GBTA members cast a ballot in the election. The election of the new board members aligned to the May 2021 GBTA member-approved changes to the association bylaws, which included composition of the GBTA board, global representation and term lengths. Additionally, the new changes made all active members, from both buyer and supplier communities, eligible to vote for all new board member seats.
