He co-founded site59.com, an online travel company that grew to over $100 million in sales in two years, and was acquired by Travelocity. In the following seven years he served as Chief Marketing Officer at Travelocity, where sales expanded from $3 billion to $11 billion globally, he introduced the “roaming gnome” and launched a fast-growing contextual advertising business.
