Albert Garcia joins Bland LTD board

Former General Manager Operations, Albert Garcia has joined the Board of Bland Ltd and has been promoted to Commercial Director.

James Gaggero chairman of Bland Ltd said he was “pleased to be able to cement the relationship that has been built up over 11 challenging years with Albert, during which Albert has proved he is an energetic leader with sound commercial acumen.”

Mr Garcia has been responsible for managing Blands’ diverse portfolio of business operations, which range from retail and business travel, motor transport, Avis rent a car, UPS document logistics and the American Express Travel representation. He has orchestrated an increase in market share in the coach park inbound tourism business in a declining market, whilst maintaining customer service levels that have been recognised by Thomson Holidays who awarded Blands Motor Transport Unit their highest and coveted Gold Award for Excellence.

Mr Garcia has also been responsible for a dramatic increase in sales and profitability of Blands’ UPS document delivery business, which has also resulted in an award from UPS for the fastest growing UPS franchise relative to the other 107 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Blands’ retail travel shops have also been restructured resulting in a 30% increase in sales and better retail travel, cruise and business travel products being made available to the Gibraltar client base.

Albert Garcia said he was “delighted to have the opportunity to lead an outstanding team of professionals committed to delivering the highest standard of customer services to our clients.”
