Nau’s years of experience will add value to Holibob’s executive team
Holibob adds former Expedia executive Andreas Nau to board of directors
Tours and attractions digital marketplace Holibob has announced it has appointed Andreas Nau to its board of directors.
The addition comes just weeks after the company brought industry veteran Peter Payet, CEO of Desert Adventures, on to its advisory board.
The former managing director, EMEA of Expedia, joins other leaders aside from Payet, who have independently held transformational roles in growing global businesses like TripAdvisor/Viator, Booking.com and StubHub.
He joins at a time when Holibob has seen gross booking value and conversion on its platform more than double year on year, while revenue has grown more than 5 times.
“We’re thrilled to have Andreas joining our team, and look forward to benefitting from his expertise as we scale the innovation we deliver for travel brands and destinations,” said Craig Everett, founder and CEO of Holibob.
“It’s extremely gratifying to have people like Andreas and Peter recognising the opportunity we have at Holibob, to deliver the curation and convenience that will transform the way travelers discover and book experiences.”
Nau, currently a partner at travel focused M&A and advisory company ennea capital partners, said: “I’m excited to join a team that is capitalizing on the vast potential for digitization within the $300 billion+ experiences industry by helping travellers discover and book amazing experiences."
He added: “While Holibob has already carved out a leadership position with its strong network of partners and innovative solutions, I look forward to contributing my extensive network and operational expertise in the travel industry to further Holibob’s journey and help the team successfully navigate their next stage of grow.”
