At its core, Travel and Transport Ultramar's philosophy is to consistently deliver the finest collection of services in a manner that lets our clients know and feel that we are on their side.

Evan Friedman

Executive Vice President & Officer

"I enjoy turning cold calls and personal visits into prospects and then into satisfied clients."

With over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Evan understands the value of delivering an unmatched experience to sophisticated, exacting business travelers.

Since joining Travel and Transport Ultramar 18 years ago, Evan and his global new business development team have worked to secure new business, thereby growing the firm's portfolio of clients, making extensive penetration in the legal/professional services, fashion, financial services and manufacturing industries. Evan attributes his success to his ability to work with all levels in his clients' organization to identify, analyze and solve problems. The consummate sales professional, Evan excels at networking -- with employees, current customers and vendors -- to obtain leads for new business.

Evan has a history of not only building relationships with clients, but also maintaining them long after the sale. Once the client is on board, Evan remains involved; many of the lessons he has learned in travel management come from dealing first-hand with the frustrations business executives face during their travel experience before they ever walk through the doors of a hotel. Evan will also consult with potential clients to craft forward-thinking, customized RFPs.

Evan has demonstrated high levels of excellence throughout his career, notably as Vice President Sales & Marketing for Affinia Hospitality/Manhattan East Suite Hotels and Swissotel NY/The Drake in New York, where he managed a staff of nine executives in sales and catering, and successfully launched a new 15-room Executive Conference Center. He was also regional sales director at Prime Hospitality, a group of mostly all-suite properties, among them its flagship AmeriSuites, designed and appointed to meet the needs of business travelers.

Evan plays a proactive role in effecting positive change in the travel industry as a member of a number of leading associations. He has earned the distinguished designation of Certified Hospitality Marketing Executive (CHME) by the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International, and is also a member of the American Society of Travel Agents, The Global Business Travel Association, and the Corporate Travel Association of New York City.

It is his unqualified honesty and this demonstrated dedication to, and in-depth understanding of the travel industry that convinces prestigious organizations that require both the best traveler experience, and strong, demonstrable cost-savings to consistently choose Travel and Transport Ultramar as their managed travel provider.

"I thrive on hearing positive feedback about Ultramar's performance from prospective clients that perform reference checks."
