What Subscribers Say

The Company Dime has been an invaluable resource for me ever since I started my subscription a few years ago. David and Jay do a fabulous job digging into topics that affect the corporate travel industry and provide fair and balanced reporting. In addition, my participation on their Buyers Council has also provided value that I truly can’t get anywhere else. It’s commercial-free, confidential, and has been a great resource to get feedback from other travel managers as well as taking quick surveys on a variety of hot topics. Kudos to David and Jay for all you do!
Sheila Kittle, Senior Manager of Global Travel, Jabil
The Company Dime is hands down the best travel news publication out there. The articles are a must-read for anyone in the industry. The Buyers Council provides us with a unique opportunity to share best practices and benchmark with our peers on a national level and helps to solve complex buyer issues.
Michelle Kramer, VP of Global Travel & Logistics, NetJets
As a first-time reader of The Company Dime and a member of the Buyers Council, I can wholeheartedly say the value far exceeds what I imagined. The consistency of quality articles, people involved and conversations has not only expanded my knowledge, it has given me the opportunity to connect with buyers from all industries for support and guidance. This is priceless, especially in these unprecedented times.
Donna McGovern, Director, US Travel, ITV America & ITV Studios America
