LONDON — Brendon Craigie has stepped down as group CEO of Hotwire after 16 years with the firm, including six as CEO, the Holmes Report can reveal.
The move comes six months after Hotwire bought the Silicon Valley boutique Eastwick, putting its global revenues in the $35 million range. Until his replacement is named, Hotwire's global leadership team will report into its holding company Enero Group CEO Matthew Melhuish. The leadership team comprises Alex MacLaverty, Barbara Bates, Andy West, Adrian Talbot and Heather Kernahan.
“Brendon has been a member of the Hotwire team for many years and we wish him success for the future," Melhuish said. "We have great confidence in the global leadership team to ensure the business continues to go from strength to strength.”
In 2015, Craigie relocated from London to New York to steer Hotwire's US growth. In addition to the US and the UK, Hotwire has offices in Europe and Australia.
“I am proud to have been part of such an exciting business, with such an outstanding leadership team and culture," Craigie said in a statement. "I believe Hotwire is in excellent shape as I move on to challenges new."
