Snyder, who has worked for BCD Travel for 22 years, was previously global president and chief operating officer.

Mike Janssen will also be promoted to chief operating officer, while retaining his current responsibilities as president of the Americas region.  

The changes follow Joop Drechsel’s decision to step down from his position at BCD Travel to focus more on his responsibilities as CEO of BCD Group.

Drechsel said: "These changes are a natural progression for our leaders. This is the team that has led BCD Travel to consistent success in sales, customer retention and expansion, and I believe that John and Mike, along with our global CFO Stephan Baars, are uniquely positioned to lead the company through its next era of growth." 

In 2013, BCD Travel acquired Travelocity Business - one of the largest takeovers in the history of the corporate travel industry.
