Joining from his previous role as business director for the International Business Research Center of VU University in Amsterdam, Lammens will be a member of the Global Executive Team, led by global president Scott Graf.

Prior to this role, he had a 14-year career at KLM where he held several VP roles in sales, marketing and operations’ strategies.

As managing director of EMEA, Lammens will have full operational and financial responsibility for BCD Meetings & Events’ activities across the region. The appointment follows the recent integration of BCD Meetings & Incentives and BCD Travel Groups to create the single brand BCD Meetings & Events. "I’m thrilled to join BCD Meetings & Events at such an exciting time, particularly for EMEA," Lammens said. "The company is positioned well as a global leader in the meetings and events’ industries, and there is already a talented leadership team in place to help take this company to the next level. I look forward to working with everyone to increase our presence in the region."

Scott Graf, global president of BCD Meetings & Events, said it was an important region, with ongoing developments. "Marc brings a level of talent and experience which I know will push the region to new levels both in how our brand is viewed there, and how we service our local and global customers."
