HRG Australia has announced that it has been appointed to provide corporate travel management services to what was described on industry website e-Travel Blackboard as Australia’s largest and most prestigious sporting body, the Australian Football League (AFL).
The article stated that:
Following a successful tender process, the AFL awarded HRG Australia the contract, citing the company’s innovative and flexible approach as key reasons behind their decision.
"With the AFL set to expand to Western Sydney and the Gold Coast, and with an eye on future global development, we wanted to appoint a company that could work with us as we broaden our horizons," commented Ian Anderson, Chief Financial Officer of the AFL.
We bring this to the attention of our readers as it's nice to continue to see references to "global development", something that was missing for many years. It isn't a major breakthrough, just another small sign of how times have slowly changed.
