European train, bus and flight booking platform GoEuro has attracted former Sony Music International boss as chief business officer.
Edgar Berger was previously chairman and chief executive of Sony Music’s operations outside of the US, leading and growing the business within 45 countries around the world from London.
His appointment is intended to help GoEuro expand the more than 600 partners it has today across 14 markets to thousands of partners across the globe.
Edgar, who will be relocating to Berlin for the new role, said: “I was attracted to GoEuro as it’s one of the most promising tech companies in Europe, with a truly international team, world class investors and a founder with a clear vision.
“Importantly for me, that vision is based on a real consumer need – to make it easy for consumers to plan and book travel both in their own country and abroad.
“The business is already on a really positive trajectory, and helping it grow to the next levels is a fantastic entrepreneurial opportunity.”
GoEuro chief executive Naren Shaam added: “Attracting the best people is what allows us to build the largest tech companies from a base in Europe. The best people then attract other stars.
“I am thrilled to have someone of Edgar’s calibre join GoEuro, and I look forward to scaling the business with him.”
