Europe’s leading flight search engine Skyscanner has appointed one of the UK’s top marketing executives, Rob Innes, to the newly created position of VP Marketing.
This key role is essential in building on Skyscanner’s continued rapid growth, establishing its position as the number one website for flight information in the world, and paving the way for diversification into new markets.
Previously, Innes was head of digital at BD Network, running a team of 35 digital professionals, developing multi-channel campaigns for multinational clients such as Coke, Nintendo, eBay and confused.com.
Innes said: “This is a very exciting time to be joining Skyscanner and the VP Marketing role is a unique opportunity to fundamentally change the travel industry and give customers access to the very best flight and travel information, at the lowest prices, whilst growing a global brand”.
The appointment of Innes comes shortly after the recruitment of Frank Skivington as VP Commercial.
