Nikki Parsons

Global Travel & Meetings Manager

Nikki has worked in the travel industry for 20 years, for the last 2 years as Global Director of Travel at Arcadis and for 9 years prior as the Global Head of Travel & Meetings at AIG. Her AIG journey began in Singapore where she implemented a managed travel and meetings program across Asia Pacific, followed by 2 years working in AIG’s New York headquarters leading the global team before returning to the UK. Her tenure at AIG saw the travel and meetings programs globalise successfully and consistently deliver value to stakeholders, through deep/win-win strategic vendor partnerships and a keen focus on people/customers. Arcadis has not managed travel globally before, so Nikki is currently setting up a new global function and implementing a global travel program to help Arcadis achieve key strategic objectives including an ambitious Net Zero target. Prior to working at AIG Nikki held Travel Management positions with Merrill Lynch and Standard Bank in London and Citi in Singapore. Nikki is also a Director at ITM. When not working, or hanging out with her 2 kids, Nikki can probably be found on her Peloton. As a Loughborough graduate, and having played competitive level sport, Nikki remains a sport and exercise enthusiast.
