Craig Hewett - CCO Wego.comCraig is the Co-Founder of Wego.com. He has more than 15 years experience in the online travel distribution industry, starting out with Holiday Inn Worldwide (now known as InterContinental Hotels Group) back in 1995 when the company launched the world’s first online booking engine. He left Holiday Inn Worldwide in 1999 to join the start up team for Priceline.com in Asia. He then joined the start up team for Zuji in Singapore where his tenure was cut short by the events of September 11th 2001.

Craig then rejoined InterContinental Hotels Group at the time when the company was ramping up its online technology investments across key Asia Pacific Markets. He developed the company’s online strategy across the region with key local investments in China and Japan, successfully introducing local language capabilities into the group’s global reservation system and marketing websites.

Realizing that travel and search engines are forever intertwined, Craig left InterContinental Hotels Group and founded Bezurk Travel Search (now wego.com) in late 2005. Craig has lived and worked in Cape Town, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore and often gets too distracted with anything to do with visual design – sucker for logos and branding.
