The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) announced in July that a third-party investigation into the professional work conduct allegations against Scott Solombrino, GBTA’s CEO, has concluded with “no misconduct or legal wrongdoing on his part.”
The GBTA’s Board of Directors reported that they received an anonymous letter asserting troubling allegations about Solombrino. The Board immediately launched an independent investigation, with Solombrino’s cooperation.
GBTA had placed Solombrino on leave pending the investigation into reports concerning the association’s workplace environment, alleging behavior that was “inconsistent with our commitment to professionalism and a respectful work environment,” the board stated.
After being cleared of the allegations, Solombrino and the GBTA Board agreed that it was time for him to pursue other opportunities. Dave Hilfman, interim executive director, said: “We thank Scott for his 25 years of service to GBTA and his passion and commitment to advancing the travel industry. We wish Scott success in his future endeavors.”
