BCD Travel reveals new Japan leadership

Leading international travel management firm BCD Travel has announced a leadership transition in its Japan business. With effect from January 1, 2024, Jonathan Kao, the present Managing Director for Greater China, will take on a more enlarged position as the Managing Director for North Asia. Jonathan will be in charge of BCD Travel’s activities in China, Hong Kong, and Japan in this role.

Kao, a BCD veteran since 2016, offers a wealth of knowledge about the complex operational, technical, and cultural aspects of the Asia-Pacific region to his new position. His leadership abilities are demonstrated by his remarkable history of fostering progress in Greater China. With focused initiatives and customized solutions, the team has continuously increased client satisfaction, broadened its service offerings, and gained more agility under Kao’s leadership. Most importantly, his knowledge of handling intricate issues like international and domestic divisions, rail transportation, and regulatory affairs would be quite helpful in his new position.

“I am genuinely thrilled about the chance to assist BCD’s customers and our own aspirational business plan in Japan,” declared Kao. “With the team, I’m excited to build on our past accomplishments and spur future expansion as we assist corporate clients and their staff in making wise travel and productivity decisions.”

“BCD’s plans for Japan put our clients at the forefront, and Japan is key to our future growth in the Asia Pacific region,” stated Greg O’Neil, President of BCD Travel’s Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa, and Global Network. “We strive to synchronize the entire ‘BCD experience’ for clients across numerous regions while reacting quickly and effectively to individual needs within this intricate industry. I’m really enthusiastic about BCD’s prospects in Japan under Jonathan’s direction.

Kazuhiko Otani, the current Managing Director of BCD Travel Japan, will take on a consultancy role as part of this leadership change.

O’Neil stated, “I am personally very grateful for Otani-san’s leadership, which spans the previous 43 years.” “BCD’s initial operational strategy and value proposition for our Japanese clients were greatly aided by his advocacy and support.” He has built a solid foundation for an even more robust future with his team.
