Ross Veitch, CEO and Co-Founder at Wego

Ross Veitch co-founded the travel metasearch siteWego in 2005 with Craig Hewett to give Southeast Asia its first real-time, bookable tool.

It was at Yahoo! that he recognised the desire for travellers to research their flight and accommodation options independently and from live inventory. Veitch joined their Southeast Asia operations and kick-started a range of initiatives including successful search, media, commerce, communications, mobile and community platforms.

Veitch’s passion for travel and technology were combined as he became Chief Product Officer of Wego and assembled one of the strongest web development teams APAC today.

In his new role, Veitch is leading the company through a period of rapid growth. Wego is headquartered in Singapore, with offices in India, Indonesia and Australia.
