New clients include Alere, a diagnostics company which has appointed Chambers to manage its travel programme in 11 markets, motorcycle manufacturer Kawasaki, and digital training specialist Decoded.

The new clients all operate in the UK and Europe and have travel budgets ranging from £50,000 to £5m. About 40% of the new business is from SMEs or companies with an annual travel spend of up to £1m, and due to this Chambers will be developing a new tailored service specifically for clients in this segment. 

Daniel Von Weihe, vice president of business development for Chambers, said: "We continue to expand at a steady rate with significant additional business taken on throughout our current financial year. 

"However, new client wins have moved up a gear in recent months following a strategic review of sales operation last August, when Chambers invested heavily in high calibre staff appointments and improved CRM technology to focus more effectively on our growth markets."
