MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., March 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel advertising technology provider ClickTripz, LLC announced today that Damien Retureau has been named Managing Director, EMEAA.
Retureau has been working in the online travel industry for more than 15 years. He has built an international career while working for marquee OTAs such as Orbitz, leading their European Distribution efforts; and lastminute.com, where he spearheaded their hotel contracting entity in France. Damien also served as Sales and Product Director at leading price comparison site Kelkoo.com, where he developed and launched their travel meta site across 9 European markets. Most recently, Retureau joins from HouseTrip.com, Europe's largest vacation rental website. At HouseTrip, he architected and executed the company's global affiliate distribution initiative.
"I have seen first hand how comparison advertising solutions can dramatically improve user experience and profit margins for travel websites," said Retureau. "ClickTripz is the only solution of its kind which has been servicing in-language and currency support for European partners over the past 2 years. I look forward to introducing this solution to many more European companies who have yet to benefit from a comparison advertising platform."
"The majority of our traffic is now being generated from Europe, and our solution has been refined specifically to meet the needs of our current and future European partners. We're extremely excited to have a travel industry veteran like Damien joining our team. Opening an office in London was an easy decision for us, and made even easier with the help of the British Consulate and London Partners."
Ross Weber, co-founder and former Kayak executive, leads a management team that averages more than a decade of experience in the online travel media industry.
