Cheapflights announces new board appointments

Chief technology officer Chris Martin and chief financial officer Alan Martin have been appointed onto the board of online travel deals firm Cheapflights Media.

The strengthening of the board follows the sudden death of former CFO Simon Bicket in June.

Alan Martin joined the company in July from BBC Worldwide where he was interim finance director for the global brands division.

Chris Martin has been with the company for four years.

Cheapflights CEO Hugo Burge said: “For the past five years Chris Martin has led our technology and product teams, helping achieve successful expansion into new markets. I am delighted to welcome him to the board to represent this fundamental aspect of the Company.

“We have exciting plans to continue our growth into new markets and products lines, so it is great to have Chris on the board to help us achieve these goals.”

He added: “Alan joined us under the sad circumstances of Simon Bicket’s unexpected death.

“We were lucky to find Alan, who comes with a wealth of expertise in international media businesses, acquisitions and integration. He has slotted into the team exceptionally well – it feels natural to add his voice and expertise to our board.

“We have been through a period of significant change but I’m delighted to have a talented, and diverse range of expertise on our board to help us with our ambitious future plans.”
