New MD for iknow-uk

Julian Ross, sales director for travel website iknow-uk, has been promoted to managing director to -¬---drive the business forward-¬~.

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.-¬~

The appointment comes as the company-ªs regional websites now cover the whole of Great Britain.

-¬---We'll soon be launching iknow-northernireland too,-¬~ added Ross.

The company invested more than -£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.
