Skyscanner CEO to step down

Bryan Dove is stepping down as Skyscanner CEO for family reasons, after five years with the company.

Moshe Rafiah, vice chair of Skyscanner, is to take over day-to-day CEO responsibilities.

Dove will remain as a senior adviser to the company.

Rafiah said: "Bryan has made a remarkable impact on Skyscanner. While the travel industry faces a challenging time, Skyscanner is a leader in the sector in every way."

Dove (pictured) said: "It has been an honour to lead Skyscanner as CEO and CTO before that. Being part of Skyscanner has been one of my greatest professional privileges.

"While it's hard to step away at this time, and despite the current challenges the world is facing, I'm confident that Skyscanner's future is brighter than ever."

Industry veteran Rafiah is the founder and CEO at Travelfusion, which, like Skyscanner, is part of the Group.

He will split his time between the two companies, though both organisations will remain operationally independent from the other.
