Travel reviews global giant Tripadvisor has named Michael Noonan as the firm’s new chief financial officer.

Noonan arrives at Tripadvisor with over 30 years of corporate finance experience, most recently as finance chief of digital health company Noom since October 2020.

Additionally, Noonan has worked as senior vice president of finance for Booking Holdings and has held several capital markets roles at RBC Capital Markets, NYSE Euronex, J.P. Morgan, and Bear Stearns & Co.

Noonan has led activities including financial planning, capital budgeting, and investor relations in his experience, and will oversee Tripadvisor’s global finance as the firm’s new CFO and senior vice president starting at the end of the month.

Ernst Teunissen, Tripadvisor’s retiring chief finance officer, will continue in post through the first quarter of 2023 to oversee finance and strategy while ensuring a smooth transition for Noonan.

Matt Goldberg, chief executive of Tripadvisor, said: “I would like to thank Ernst, also on behalf of our Board of Directors, for his many valuable contributions over the past seven years, and personally for the counsel he has provided through my own onboarding.

“His guidance, especially through the volatile pandemic period, has been key to our strong financial position.

“Moreover, his leadership of Viator, TheFork, and Cruise Critic, has driven strong revenue growth for these strategic businesses coming out of the pandemic.

“I am also excited to announce that Mike Noonan is joining the team as our new CFO.

“He brings a dynamic set of experiences across consumer brands and digital business models and a strategic perspective grounded in a deep knowledge of the travel industry, along with a broad and tenured background in corporate finance, long-term financial planning, and capital markets.

“We look forward to his leadership and insight as we address the many opportunities to serve our consumers and partners across the travel ecosystem.

“On behalf of all our employees, we welcome him to the Tripadvisor family."
