Ground transportation technology scale-up Transferz strengthens its senior team with TravelTech veteran Peter Hilton (HolidayTaxisGroup)
Amsterdam, April 12 2022 – Peter Hilton, former Chief Executive Officer and founding Director at HolidayTaxis Group, strengthens Transferz’s Advisory Board. Hilton brings a strong track record and over a decade of experience in the ground transportation industry. As CEO of HolidayTaxisGroup, which he was a founding Direct in 2002, he was the architect behind developing the business in becoming global leader in pre-book airport transfers.
Peter Hilton commented: “I am very excited about getting back into the ground transportation industry. I have been researching the best technology solution and I consider Transferz’s technology and service led platform to be ideal for the future of this industry.
Over the last 2 years during the pandemic they have invested heavily in an all-new platform with innovative and class-leading technology. The industry is crying out for a tech enabled truly scalable business that puts the traveller at the forefront of the product. They have already started working with Expedia and Booking.com amongst others, demonstrating their intent to be a global leader in the industry.
Not only is their product offering unparalleled, their data capture and analysis allows insight into booking and passenger behavior at a new level. This will allow partners to fully understand their customers and Transferz to optimize their product and pricing for the benefit of travellers globally.
By investing in and joining this impressive team I will add my experience and network to introduce Transferz game-changing technology to more partners in the travel industry. Transferz shares and expands my vision of the next generation global transfer platform and is set to transform the industry.
Johan van Vulpen, CEO of Transferz: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Peter to Transferz. A true industry veteran with a strong understanding of the key strategic topics and variables at play. Together, we will move forward into a new phase of growth for technology-enabled ground transportation, making it more sustainable, reliable and appreciated!”
