Rob DeemingFormer CEO Rob Deeming (pictured) is taking charge of Hooroo in a caretaker role following the imminent departure of Executive Manager Bruce Fair, who is returning to the UK in late September.

Launched in 2012, Hooroo is the accommodation platform for the Qantas Group and powers online hotel bookings across three of its brands: Qantas, Jetstar and Hooroo.

Mr Fair has been there from the start, beginning as Commercial Director, and will seek an internet-based role in the UK and Europe on his return to the northern hemisphere.

“I am going to take some time to look at options back in London/Europe as we are expecting another child in November,” he said.

“However, I am joining a well-known international OTA as board advisor from late September which allows me to play in the travel space for a bit longer!”

Mr Deeming is “taking over as caretaker of the Hooroo business until a permanent hire is found.”

“Rob’s experience means he is well-placed to ensure continuity for Hooroo, our employees, hotel suppliers and business partners.”
