Secret Escapes appoints new CFO

Members-only travel and experience company Secret Escapes Group has appointed Andy Botha as chief financial officer.

He joins from ZPG, where he was group CFO for three years.

ZPG focuses on providing users with access to information such as sold house prices, area trends & statistics and current value estimates for domestic properties in the UK

At ZPG, Botha oversaw the successful financing and integration of its acquisitions, up until its sale to Silverlake for £2.5 billion in May 2018.

He has over 17 years' experience working with high growth digital, e-commerce and leisure businesses and has also held senior roles at Betfair, and Holiday Autos.

Secret Escapes co-founder and CEO Alex Saint said: "Since founding in 2010, we have significantly increased the size and scale of the business and we now operate several market leading travel and experience brands in over 22 territories, with over 1,000 employees globally.

"Andy's experience of working with digital and travel and experiences businesses will be particularly relevant as we focus on strengthening our presence in our operating markets, integrating acquisitions, including most recently TravelBird and EML, and growing the business."
