Kiwi.com appoints former American Airlines marketing chief Stephen Davis

Former American Airlines global marketing strategy director Stephen Davis has been named as chief marketing officer at flight search specialist Kiwi.com.

He was also a brand director at Expedia in Europe and worked for Tui, Hovis and Southcorp Wines in Australia.

Kiwi.com chief executive, Oliver Dlouhy, said: “After nearly five years of fast paced global organic growth we want to bolster our marketing team, and are delighted to have Stephen Davis join us.

“Kiwi.com is all about simplifying the travel experience. I set up the company as I was frustrated by the inability to link up and book flight itineraries across multiple independent airlines.

“Kiwi.com serves up better flight connections and enables travellers to optimise their travel experience thus creating a single itinerary and saving money.

“Steve will help us grow in the markets in which we are already established and enter new ones”.

Davis added: “Kiwi.com is a true disruptor, fast paced, innovative company with a great story to tell. I look forward to being part of that further accelerated growth trajectory.”

The company claimed to have attracted more than 32 million flight searches in January.
