Will Tate, CPA
Partner
GoldSpring Consulting

Will Tate, partner at GoldSpring Consulting, an independent travel management consultancy company, brings three decades of financial accounting and travel management experience to a wide range of organizations.

Beginning his career at Dresser Industries as an internal auditor, he led global operational and financial audits across 30 countries, and later served as its global travel manager, consolidating a global travel spend of $100+million. In 2000, Will joined Management Alternatives, Inc., and served as senior vice president while he simultaneously founded 3d Travel Metrics. He developed a software solution to quantify the effectiveness of travel management programs in a multi-dimensional format.

Will joined the team at GoldSpring Consulting because their goals aligned with his passion for providing exceptional travel management advice, focusing on the traveler service experience with procurement driven programs. Will’s turnkey, proprietary survey tool has created innovation in travel management by connecting these two critical travel components. This relationship creates tangible value, in spite of rising prices and ever increasing traveler demands.

Further, GoldSpring’s suite of strategic analytic tools allows him to aggregate superior travel spend analyses for an in-depth look at the performance of current travel programs. The result is an independent set of recommendations for client air, hotel and TMC sourcing projects with a focus on the traveler experience. By maximizing travel spend and streamlining corporate travel management processes, Will highlights unrivaled savings and improved service levels for his clients.

Will has taught many industry courses and co-authored the GBTA course “Fundamentals of Business Travel Management.” Will is a Certified Public Accountant and received his Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting from Texas Tech University.

Technology Engagement Manager

Charlie Mitchell, resident tech expert and millennial, lives to experiment with the newest and latest technologies and envision how technology can change the daily lives of users. He brings this same passion to GoldSpring Consulting and thrives when solving problems in the realm of the traveler experience.

His travel journey started in 2007 at Prestige Resorts, helping digitalize the buying process for the meetings and incentives hotel sourcing experience. During his time there, he helped the company establish new marketing and business development methods and established a social media presence for the firm.

After that he spent some time outside the travel industry at Korn/Ferry International helping companies develop and actualize competency programs and e-suite platform, which changed HR systems integration processes across the country to build better frameworks for join positions and interviews.

In 2014, he re-entered the travel industry at CWT in the digital solutions team. While there he acted as a digital solutions consultant solving for how the TMC could best position product and service offerings in the travel industry from beginning to end. He has had the opportunity to optimize technology setup and transform the programs of Fortune 500 companies across the globe.
