TripStax swept the board at this year’s Business Travel People Awards, winning three categories: the TripStax Leadership Team won Travel Technology Innovator of the Year; Jack Ramsey, CEO was awarded People Manager of the Year; and Nikki Banks, CMO was named Shining Star.
The prestigious Business Travel People Awards have been running for 12 years and are judged by an esteemed panel of industry experts. The judges praised each of TripStax’s winners as follows….

Travel Technology Innovator: “In just one year, TripStax has made a significant impact as a tech disruptor, challenging the industry’s historically complex tech integrations and transactional economics to help TMCs – mainly SME TMCs – to manage data more consistently and cost-effectively for their corporate clients. And it has done this all with creativity and flair.”

People Manager of the Year: “Jack’s management style is inspirational, visionary and intuitive. At TripStax he has created an environment where employees feel valued and know they can show their true personality in the workplace and won’t be penalised for showing vulnerability. The testimonials from his employees show he listens, puts people at ease, gives them freedom to thrive, makes them laugh and inspires them to do their absolute best. One testimonial says it all: “I’ve seen more harmony in my personal life, my work life and I feel much more productive because of Jack’s presence within TripStax. In my 30-plus years in the industry, I have never had a leader who I want to follow, work with or harder for, than Jack.”

Shining Star: “Nikki has come into the industry as a complete outsider to launch a technology brand in a highly-competitive and complex market. With a refreshing energy, creativity and passion, she has worked tirelessly to establish the TripStax brand, pushing the boundaries with her quirky ideas and always looking to create the ‘wow’ factor. Not only has she made TripStax a recognised travel tech brand in a short space of time, she is held in high regard by clients, partners and colleagues. It feels like she’s been in the industry forever!”

Winners were presented with their awards at a glittering ceremony in London attended by over 300 business travel professionals. Opening the ceremony, the awards organiser and Publisher of The Business Travel Magazine, Kirsty Hicks, said: “What makes the People Awards so special is that they are about the people in our industry. Our awards aren’t about companies, or brands. They’re about the individuals and teams who make the difference, are going above and beyond, or making an outstanding contribution to business travel.”
