Last-minute holiday rentals firm Snaptrip.com has made a double appointment as it seeks further growth in 2018.

Mustafe Awale joins the business in the role of senior performance marketing manager and will be responsible for partners and affiliate relationships.

Robin Skidmore has also been promoted to non-executive board director. Skidmore invested in the company three years ago after selling digital marketing agency Epiphany.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Mustafe to the team as well and have no doubt that his knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we move forward and continue to grow,” said founder and CEO Matt Fox. “It’s an exciting time for both Snaptrip and the industry as a whole.  

“The impact Robin has had since joining the Snaptrip.com journey in the autumn of 2015 has been invaluable, particularly because of his experience in the travel industry and wealth of contacts.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Robin as a non-executive director and anticipate an expansion of the considerable impact he has already had on the business.”

Awale joins from Webgains where he worked on big-name clients including Nike and Virgin Experience Days.

At the end of last year he was nominated for ‘Best Managed Affiliate Program’ during the Performance Marketing Awards.
