Responsible for the strategic direction of the business relationships in North America, Fred will be Conferma Pay’s lead contact for key global distribution systems, travel management companies and technology providers.

There is a huge opportunity to expand the usage of virtual payments into new areas, leveraging innovations which benefit corporate travel programs, their travellers, as well as TMCs.”
