A HOLIDAY rental web platform founded in 2002 and with 18,000 holiday homes listed around Spain has new ownership.
www.spain-holiday.com received over 23 million website visits in 2018 and had a turnover of €2.2 million and is currently available in 13 languages.
It has a very strong presence for holidaymakers from the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The change will not affect the normal activity of Spain-Holiday.com, which has had its headquarters in Malaga since 2002 and has 35 employees.
The company’s founder and sole owner until the end of March was Claus Sorensen, but he will now be sharing ownership in equal conditions with Jan Dal Lehrmann, Kenneth Andersen and Jannich Friis Petersen.
Claus Sorensen said: “This is a step that will strengthen Spain-Holiday.com’s ability to set a strategy for strong performance in the coming years. With the incorporation of Jan, Kenneth and Jannich to the company we will be able to strengthen our brand value and attribution in Spain and we’ll have the opportunity to develop a more ambitious expansion plan.”
Now, the four owners of Spain-Holiday.com will focus on “providing the platform user with a unique experience when renting out or booking a holiday home in Spain, consolidating its activity in the tourism industry and setting up future expansion plans”.
The company say: “This ownership change will strengthen the activity of Spain-Holiday.com in the Spanish holiday rental industry thanks to the input and knowledge provided by the new co-owners: experience in digital businesses, unique know-how and strategic vision.
“Each one of the new owners provides an important professional value to the management of the company and share the same objective of achieving the long term goals planned for Spain-Holiday.com. The four of them add up many years of experience in managing online businesses in Europe, the knowledge of developing niche and new markets and the development of B2B-B2C strategies. “
