Harvey, who will take up the new position for the international corporate services company with immediate effect, will assume responsibility for global marketing strategy and services.
Harvey first joined HRG in 1979, working through the business to an appointment on the board of the then UK business travel division in 1990. After a career in commerce and industry, Harvey rejoined HGH in 2009 on an interim assignment to lead the global sales team through a period of transition, and more recently has been leading a number of major projects surrounding the development of new global initiatives.
David Radcliffe, chief executive of HRG, said: "John brings with him not only a broad, working knowledge of our business but also an extensive and varied marketing background. Reporting directly to me, John is tasked with ensuring HRG maintains its market leading position on the global stage, bringing to market the very latest products and services to deliver value, uncompromised service and commercial benefit to our clients and partners worldwide."
Harvey adds: "I have seen the business evolve and grow in terms of size and overall success and I’m really looking forward to taking a more direct role in helping to ensure this continues. We are known for our enterprise, creativity and excellent service. The future promises great potential and many new opportunities for HRG and together with the marketing team around the world, I am very much looking forward to the new challenge."
