Hotels search engine and aggregator HotelsCombined.com has appointed Hichame Assi as its new head of strategy for online marketing.

Formerly On Holiday Group head of ecommerce, Assi also spent nine years at Octopus Travel where he was general manager of its Australia and New Zealand division.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to working with such a dynamic and smart team and helping to extend the HotelsCombined.com social and commercial network functionality.

“As online travel booking continues to change the face of global travel, my main priority will be to help make HotelsCombined.com the most comprehensive hotel search engine with the most interactive and personal experience.”

Michael Doubinski, general manager of HotelsCombined.com, added: “With experience in both information technology and eCommerce strategy, Hichame is a dynamic addition to the HotelsCombined.com team.

“Through further development of strategic online platforms and subsequent marketing, HotelsCombined.com will no doubt continue to shine as the worldwide hotel meta-search engine leader, offering the very best product for our users and our partners.”
