Reimer will oversee the US and Canada and Mrad will oversee the EMEA and APAC regions as well as American Express GBT's Travel Partner Network (TPN).
After almost 19 years with American Express and American Express GBT, Reimer has a wealth of leadership experience gained in various sales, client management and commercial roles, working across Asia Pacific and Europe. In his most recent role as managing director, American Express GBT, APAC, he developed the business strategy across APAC, was responsible for managing and improving operations, and was a board member on several joint ventures within Asia.
As managing director, Mrad has led the EMEA region through a period of growth. He now adds APAC to his remit, and will be focused on strengthening commercial activities across both regions.
Philippe Chérèque, president, American Express Global Business Travel said: "Last September, we started on a journey to optimise and simplify our commercial organisation in an effort to create greater intimacy and operational efficiency for the benefit of our customers.
"I feel confident that this new structure, with David and Elyes in their expanded roles, will enable more nimble decision-making, increased alignment to our strategic goals and accelerate our time to market."
