Travelperk appoints chief product officer

Ross McNairn has been appointed chief product officer of Travelperk, a company which claims to be the 'next-generation business travel platform'.

Previously at Letgo, McNairn also spent three years at Skyscanner running its corporate travel business.

He previously co-founded Dorsai Travel before it was acquired by Skyscanner.

Avi Meir, CEO and co-founder of TravelPerk, said: "Finding someone like Ross, who not only has great experience in leading product teams through hyper-growth, but also deep knowledge of business travel, is rare in this industry so we are delighted to have him join the team for the next phase of our growth. He ticks all the boxes and the team is really excited to have him on board."

In his new role, McNairn will be working to bring more products to market following the launch of FlexiPerk earlier this year.

He said: "TravelPerk has been experiencing exceptional growth, and with business travel platforms receiving around $600 million in investment in the last year, it's clear the world is beginning to take notice of this huge, $1.4 trillion opportunity.

"It's an ideal time for me to come back to the industry, as I've long believed that people are frustrated with the status quo. I am excited to have an opportunity to build on TravelPerk's amazing foundation and put the traveller back at the heart of the experience."

TravelPerk claims its 'all-in-one platform' gives travellers the 'freedom they want whilst providing companies with the control they need'.
