Flight Centre’s former global marketing leader
invests in Komosion and joins Board
Melbourne, 9 July 2009
Digital marketing and software services company Komosion today announced the appointment of Mr Keith Stanley, Flight Centre’s former Executive General Manager Product Marketing and Distribution, to its Board and its share register.
Mr Stanley led Flight Centre’s marketing for 16 years. He was most recently the Chief Executive of Stella Travel Services and is also a former national marketing manager of IKEA. He said he was attracted to Komosion because of its people, services and awardwinning website publishing software.
“As a life-long marketer I was hugely impressed by the company’s software, Komodo CMS, which really puts the power of the web into the hands of its clients,” Mr Stanley said.
“The company has a very smart business model whereby it provides its software to clients over the web at great value price points. They don’t need to install any new hardware or software and can immediately drive their own integrated digital marketing campaigns.”
In a related move, the Board also appointed Komosion’s Chairman, Mr John O’Neill, to the role of Managing Director. Mr O’Neill is a former Managing Director of Tourism New South
Wales, the NSW Government agency responsible for marketing Sydney and NSW within Australia and around the world.
“Keith’s investment and the continuing support of our directors and existing shareholders will allow us to grow the distribution of our software, expand our services and continue to invest in finding new ways to turn on the power of the internet for our clients,” Mr O’Neill said.
Mr O’Neill said he had asked Komosion’s Chief Executive, Mr Berry Driessen, to continue in his role albeit with a sharper focus driving sales and marketing and, in particular, indirect software sales, as well as retaining responsibility for overseeing financial control.
