Skift Take

For all the chaos earlier this week, it seems like Barry Diller and the Expedia Inc. board of directors have ensured an orderly transition into a new era for the online travel giant.

Expedia Inc. has selected Alan Pickerill to fill the chief financial officer and executive vice president role vacated by Mark Okerstrom as he steps up into the president and CEO role following the departure of Dara Khosrowshahi to Uber.

Pickerill, who currently serves as senior vice president, treasurer, and head of investor relations, has been with Expedia Inc. since 2008 and worked closely with his predecessor Okerstrom throughout his tenure with the company. He’s led Expedia Inc.’s investor relations program since 2010.

Before joining Expedia, Pickerill worked as director of investor relations at Getty Images and in various roles at Microsoft.

“[Pickerill] has been a critical member of the Expedia financial leadership team for nearly 10 years and during that time has established himself as a highly capable leader and financial thought partner to not only me but also our entire executive team,” said Okerstrom in a statement. “A smart, experienced and savvy finance professional, Alan combines his broad functional expertise with a deep knowledge of Expedia and the well-earned respect of the broader investment and finance community at large. As we enter our next chapter of growth, there is no better person to stand by my side at the financial helm of Expedia.”
