The growth, which was recorded during the financial year ending June 2015, is expected to continue across both travel management and events services, with Boris Doerwald heading up the Berlin office.

Doerwald has spent 27 years in the corporate travel industry, having held key team leader and account manager roles at Lufthansa City Center, Egencia, and NH Hoteles.

The travel management company recently moved into new premises in Berlin after outgrowing its former office space. The new Berlin office has capacity for 40 staff and has been established to provide a stronger service hub for clients in continental Europe. Chambers has also appointed three additional operations consultants in Berlin within the last two months and plans to recruit a further two consultants by December 2015.

"We are committed to the German market and the exciting growth that has brought on this expansion is a reflection of the quality and professional service we provide to our German customer base," said Chris Thelen, CEO, Chambers Travel Group.

"This is an exciting time for Chambers in Germany and we will continue to strive to deliver local and personal service on the ground with the benefit of a truly global network now that Chambers is the European anchor for CTM Group."
