Paul English has named Mike Volpe the new CEO of Lola, and English
will transition to president and chief technology officer.
Lola uses a combination of artificial intelligence and human
travel agents to serve business travelers.
Paul English co-founded Kayak in 2004.
English founded Lola in 2015 and co-founded travel
metasearch company Kayak in 2004. He said the move to relinquish the CEO
position was a business decision.
"I'm a CTO at heart and love building product,"
English said in a statement. "At my other companies, I've always had a
strong partner on the business side, and I think it's time to do that at Lola."
Volpe comes to Lola from Cybereason, where he was chief
marketing officer. Before that, he was one of the first employees of Hubspot,
eventually becoming its chief marketing officer.
