pricelineThe Priceline Group, the world leader in online travel experiences and parent company of six major brands including Booking.com, priceline.com, KAYAK, agoda.com, Rentalcars.com and OpenTable, announced that Brett Keller has been named Interim Chief Executive Officer of priceline.com, a subsidiary business of The Priceline Group, effective immediately.

“We could not be more fortunate to have Brett, a 17-year veteran of the business, step into the role of interim CEO of priceline.com,” said Boyd.  “I am confident that his expertise in all facets of the priceline.com business and his passion for the brand will ensure a seamless transition upon Paul’s departure, and I look forward to working with Brett as we continue to pursue this iconic brand’s evolution in a changing marketplace.  We thank Paul for his dedication to the Group over the last 16 years.”

 

 

 

“Priceline.com has a long history of bringing its loyal customer base the absolute best deals in travel,” said Keller. “I have been a part of this journey alongside the priceline.com leadership team and Jeff Boyd for many years and look forward to continued product innovation, further adapting and innovating around our passion to deliver customers the best deals across all digital platforms.”

 

 

 

Prior to joining priceline.com, Brett managed Cendant’s online travel businesses as a Director of Online Travel. Brett holds an MBA from Cornell’s Johnson Graduate School of Management and an undergraduate degree in Japanese from Brigham Young University.  He also serves on the board of directors for Broadridge Financial Solutions.
