Belgium-based venture expands ITA Group’s footprint to deliver culturally relevant, in-market engagement solutions for clients with European employees, channel partners and customers.
West Des Moines, Iowa/Bruges, Belgium, February 04, 2021—ITA Group®, a global leader in corporate engagement solutions, has incorporated ITA Group Europe as the newest member of the ITA Group family of companies. Based out of Belgium, ITA Group Europe will allow clients to take advantage of more culturally relevant and locally managed engagement solutions that inspire and motivate European-based employees, channel partners and customers.
In addition to incorporating in Europe, ITA Group formed a strategic affiliation with Motisha, a Belgium-based leader in engagement programs. Motisha offers exceptional global capabilities, 18 years of European operational experience, and a passionate and dedicated client-centric culture, similar to ITA Group.
This strategic affiliation allows ITA Group to deliver immediate benefits to clients including:
- Enhanced global perspective on engagement programs with informed cultural insights and sensitivity;
- In-region, local program management throughout Europe;
- Enhanced global technology, communications and award capabilities; and
- Access to a strong network of European support partners.
“This European expansion is an important step to better serve our clients’ ever-growing needs,” said Kurt Hosna, ITA Group’s Director of Global Strategy. “As a result, we can now offer stronger, more locally managed and culturally sensitive programs to our clients who are looking to connect, engage and motivate throughout Europe.” He added, “Knowing the nuances between regions, countries and cultures, while also having a strong supplier network, is critical to fulfilling our promise to achieve maximum business results.”
Fintan Connolly, Motisha’s Chief Revenue Officer, commented, “Bringing this strategic affiliation to completion signifies the importance both ITA Group and Motisha place on delivering a truly local experience on a global level. We’re extremely excited about what the future holds for our two organizations.”
