Robert Goldsmith has moved from Cheapflights to join Kayak as UK senior sales manager.
He was responsible for online advertising across a number of platforms at Cheapflights, working with companies such as British Airways, Opodo and STA Travel.
Goldsmith started his career in the travel industry nine years ago at Teletext.
Kayak UK managing director Annie Wilson said: “Robert brings with him a wealth of industry experience and knowledge that will add remarkable value to the UK business as we focus on development.”
London-based Goldsmith, who reports to European sales director Gareth Walton, said: “Kayak’s potential for growth in the UK and across Europe is something that attracted me to the role.
“Kayak is a household name within North America and as part of my role I’ll be aiming to replicate this across Europe.”
