Johan Wilson, who is currently head of Carlson Wagonlit Travel in the Nordic region, has been appointed country director of CWT UK & Ireland.
He will start his new role on November 1st.
This follows the promotion of CWT UK & Ireland’s senior vice president Chris Bowen to managing director, Northern Europe.
Wilson has been at CWT since 2008 and he has had several roles during that time.
Until his successor is in place in the Nordics, he will be responsible for both markets simultaneously.
Wilson said: “It has been an exciting and important journey to meet the demands of the competitive market in the Nordics and now I look forward to working with the teams in the UK & Ireland.
“It is a market where CWT already has a strong position as the leading travel management company and there is still a lot of room to grow.”
CWT is a global leader specialised in managing business travel and meetings and events.
CWT serves companies, government institutions and non-governmental organisations of all sizes in more than 150 countries and territories.
