    Summary

    Global sales lead at Triptease. Triptease dramatically increases direct bookings for hotels, disrupting the OTA behemoths, and getting the best deals for guests. 7M$ Series A just raised: http://techcrunch.com/2016/02/18/triptease-series-a/ _ _ _ Previously, I was in charge of Viadeo's operations in the emerging markets. Since arriving at Viadeo in 2008, I held several different roles including that of Chief Sales Officer, during which I oversaw the scaling and development of all B2B revenue lines; Chief Operating Officer for Viadeo’s European division, and Director of UK and Irish operations – a position I held when I first joined the company and one in which I doubled the member base in these countries in just one year. Prior to Viadeo I was on the exec team at online publishers & software specialists, j4b (now Idox plc). I conceived & grew j4b’s advertising, SAAS & white label businesses. In 2006 I relocated to the States & built j4b’s US business in Boston. I live with my family in North Wales.
