Gray Dawes Group has acquired travel management specialist Giles Travel.
The move also sees Giles Travel’s specialist MICE division Globe, leisure division World by Design and brand and marketing agency Square1, join the Gray Dawes Group.
Suzanne Horner, CEO of Gray Dawes Group, said: "This is an exciting period for Gray Dawes, our employees and loyal clients.
"Our company has grown rapidly through organic sales and acquisition; this latest chapter in our development is the jewel in the crown to a highly successful 2018. That is not to say, however, that it is our final acquisition of the year."
Horner continued: "I have long admired the business that David Giles and the whole team have built. Giles Travel is renowned across the industry and has outstanding staff. It is safe to say I am delighted to welcome them to the Gray Dawes Group."
David Giles, chairman of Giles Travel, added: "Both Gray Dawes and The Giles Group have invested heavily in staff as well as client facing and back office technology. I am very excited by the opportunity to work with Suzanne and her team."
