American Express Named “Most Admired Payment System” For Fifth Consecutive Year In The Beat’s 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards Program

American Express has been named “Most Admired Payment System” by readers of The Beat, the BTN Group’s industry-leading business travel newsletter. This is the fifth year in a row American Express has won the award, making it the only company to do so since The Beat’s Readers’ Choice Awards program launched in 2008.

“We’re honored to be chosen for this award by people who know corporate travel and payments inside and out,” said Darryl Brown, President, Americas, Global Corporate Payments, American Express. “We’re always working to deliver valuable payment solutions and expertise to companies and their travelers, so it’s great to be seen in this light by our peers. We’re especially gratified to be recognized for our commitment to service, which is a core tenet of the way American Express does business.”
