Thomas Bangert started working in the travel industry in 2000 for a little start up called Ifyoutravel, a part of the multimedia branch of LVMH. He transferred to Ifyoutravel’s headquarter in London late 2001 and shortly after that, Ifyoutravel was acquired by the Online Travel Corporation (OTC). OTC was then acquired by lastminute.com and later by Travelocity (Sabre).
From Commercial Manager, to Supply Sales Director, Thomas moved on to become the Media Director for Northern Europe. In April 2011 he moved to TripAdvisor where he is now the Director Display EU. Thomas has direct reports all over Europe working with both clients directly as well as media agencies and trading desks to provide both the advertiser as well as the TripAdvisor user with the most relevant ad at the right time in the contextually most appropriate environment.
