British online travel group Travelzest plc has appointed Robin Sutherland as Managing Director of holiday.co.uk. (4/18/2007)
Sutherland, who will join the Group on 23 April 2007, was previously with Expedia.co.uk.
Travelzest’s holiday.co.uk and flight.co.uk websites have recently been relaunched with enhanced content and functionality.
Holiday.co.uk moves from being a third party package holiday distributor to a full service online holiday portal providing a broad range of holidays, including dynamic packaging and access to the content of the group’s specialist tour operators.
Sutherland worked with Expedia.co.uk for over five years, first as Director of Customer Analytics and latterly as Director of Retail. He has been instrumental in shaping Expedia’s retail and merchandising strategy and defining its dynamic package promotion model. He built the analytics function in the UK from scratch and optimised marketing spend from mid-2003, which resulted in significant year-on-year growth for 2004.
