Stratajet has appointed Donovan Frew as its new chief technology officer (CTO).
Frew (pictured) was formerly the CTO of Secret Escapes for six years. He joins Stratajet to continue the development of its technology, which gives customers access to the private jet marketplace.
Working closely alongside Stratajet founder Jonny Nicol, Frew’s remit is to build the technical infrastructure to align the platform’s capabilities with the business strategy
“There are very few industries left that are still doing things today the same way they did it 25 years ago. Unfortunately this is largely the case for private aviation.”
Frew said: “There are very few industries left that are still doing things today the same way they did it 25 years ago. Unfortunately this is largely the case for private aviation. Many startups talk about disruption but what Stratajet is doing is truly unique and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be a part of the company’s aspirations to build on its initial success.”
Nicol added: “With a technology as advanced as Stratajet’s, we need someone of Donovan’s significant expertise to keep the platform at the forefront of the private jet industry. His knowledge of software development, coupled with his experience in the travel industry, sees him perfectly positioned to drive our technology strategy in our mission to fundamentally change the way people travel.”
Stratajet is a private jet booking platform that uses advanced technology to display accurate costs of available aircraft. This technology has streamlined private jet travel, giving fliers the means of comparing and booking from a range of aircraft.
