Talma Travel Solutions Acquires Majority of Brickell Travel Management

Corporate travel management company Brickell Travel Management (BTM) has announced that Israel-based travel management company Talma Travel Solutions has acquired a majority stake in the company. 

With a local presence in the U.S., Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, BTM serves clients in more than 20 countries with a focus on the United States and Latin America, offering comprehensive travel solutions for corporate and leisure travelers. Through the partnership with Talma, BTM now has a gateway into new markets within Europe and the Middle East through Talma’s network in more than 100 countries. BTM anticipates total sales to double within the next three years through this partnership.

“When we began searching for the right partner to collaborate with, we knew we were looking for an extension of our team that could help us achieve a more expansive geographical footprint within the U.S. and worldwide,” said Maikel Rodriguez, CEO of Brickell Travel Management. “We instantly felt Talma was the perfect fit as they aligned with our culture and vision while also working within the same business model that has already proven successful for our team.”

“This investment represents an exciting opportunity for both companies to grow and innovate together,” said Iya Magen, CEO of Talma. “We look forward to continuing to focus on offering dependable services while establishing trusted relationships with every client in our network.”

The BTM team gains access to Talma’s latest technologies and innovative solutions, including Wenrix, a next-gen airfare optimization tool; and Arbitrip, a hotel platform that provides organizers and travelers with tailored recommendations, automatic rebookings in case of price drops, and intuitive reporting. The talented team can also now access expanded GDS (global distribution system) content from multiple providers as well as increased distribution content such as NDC (new distribution capabilities).

BTM will continue to be led by its co-founders Maikel Rodriguez and Michael Rodriguez, along with Marc da Rocha, director of sales and account management, and Ennio Gonzalez, director of supplier relations. All employees and client relationships will remain under the existing structure, and operations will be continued at existing office locations.
