Agency TAG says that its new Leeds office will be home to five of the "most experienced" staff in the business travel industry.

The agency says that, as one of the UK’s main business hubs, the new office in Leeds reinforces TAG’s commitment to its existing UK client base.

It will also support a planned development for the northern region alongside TAG’s Manchester operation.

Staff in the Leeds corporate team - who have worked together for the last 20 years - will be led by operations manager Gavin Watson.

Nigel Charlton has also joined the team as strategic account manager, to support the requirements of the clients in Leeds.

Tag corporate managing director UK Shelley Brady said: "Today’s corporate marketplace is complex and the competition is fierce, which is why at TAG we recognise the need to surround ourselves with the most highly-skilled professionals.

"Gavin, Stuart, Ryan, Daniel and Nigel have the skills, knowledge and connections to handle anything that comes their way, taking the best care of our customers and travellers, giving them a seamless experience from start to finish."

The company says the expansion means customers and travellers in Leeds will also benefit from TAG’s competitive airfares and strategic supplier partnerships.

Tag was founded in 1988 and was formerly known as The Appointment Group.

It has offices in London, Manchester, Leeds, Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta, New York, Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney.
