Julian Ross, sales director for travel website iknow-uk, has been promoted to managing director to â€œdrive the business forwardâ€.
He replaces the company's founder and former managing director, Marcus Simmons, who will become chairman.
Ross said: "Marcus has done an amazing job since he launched the business in 2003, growing the company from a one-man initiative, into a successful, high profile travel brand.
"He'll definitely be a hard act to follow, but will still be heavily involved in the business in his role as chairman.â€
The appointment comes as the companyâ€™s regional websites now cover the whole of Great Britain.
â€œWe'll soon be launching iknow-northernireland too,â€ added Ross.
The company invested more than Â£55,000 into an overhaul of its regional sites at the start of the year and said the sites as a whole are attracting 55% more visitors than the same period last year.
