Skyscanner chief operating officer Mark Logan has been awarded director of the year by the Institute of Directors in Scotland.
Logan, who was commended for his “transformational leadership”, was named as both the IoD Scotland director of the year in the ‘businesses up to £35 million turnover’ category and the Edinburgh, Lothians & the Borders regional director of the year for 2013.
Logan joined Skyscanner in April 2012, and last year the company saw revenues increase by 96% and unique visitors to the site each month double to 25 million.
Other milestones include the acquisition of hotel search technology company Fogg, secondary investment by Sequoia Capital, which valued Skyscanner at £500 million, the opening of a new office in Miami and coming sixth in The Sunday Times’ Best Companies to Work for.
IoD Scotland executive director David Watt said: “Mark has consolidated and accelerated the rise of one of Scotland’s recent success stories, delivering solid results with attention to detail.
“Growth has been fast but achievable and with his CEO, they have produced a solid winning leadership where the sky is not the limit.”
