UK/Germany. International corporate travel services company Hogg Robinson Group (HRG) is seeing a significant increase in demand for advice and consultative expertise from its HRG Consulting division and as a result has established a new international team under the leadership of Paul Dear, Head of Client Consultancy.
This expanded HRG Consulting Team will support clients who wish to implement savings and optimise their Travel and Entertainment (T&E) programmes globally. Dear has a long standing career with HRG in which he has demonstrated impressive consultative and reporting skills and expertise. He comments: “I am thrilled to be given this opportunity and am very excited about the prospect of leading a team of highly experienced Project Managers and Analysts who are dedicated to travel management. I have absolutely no doubt of the value they will bring to our clients through their knowledge of our industry and appreciation of our clients’ business objectives.”

Dear and his new international senior team, which includes Marion Klar (based in Germany), Clare White (based in the UK) and Peter Burtness (based in USA), will use their experience to identify and demonstrate how HRG Consulting can maximise savings and flag up future opportunities for its clients. Marion Klar has been promoted to Head of Consulting Mainland Europe. Klar’s career with HRG began in 2006 when she was appointed as Principal HRG Consultant, responsible for Germany and Austria.
Klar commented: “I am delighted to be given this opportunity and excited about the growth of the team here in Europe. The expansion will allow us to supply HRG’s clients and non-clients in Europe with expertise and technology to optimise their T&E programmes.”
