Michael Noonan named Tripadvisor CFO

Tripadvisor Inc. has appointed Michael Noonan as CFO/SVP, effective Oct. 31. He will replace Ernst Teunissen, who will retire from the company to pursue other interests. Through the first quarter of 2023, Teunissen will be actively engaged with key finance and strategy initiatives, as well as facilitating a smooth CFO transition.

“I would like to thank Ernst, also on behalf of our board of directors, for his many valuable contributions over the past seven years, and personally for the counsel he has provided through my own onboarding,” said Matt Goldberg, CEO, Tripadvisor. “His guidance, especially through the volatile pandemic period, has been key to our strong financial position. Moreover, his leadership of Viator, TheFork and Cruise Critic, has driven strong revenue growth for these strategic businesses coming out of the pandemic.”

He added, “Mike Noonan brings a dynamic set of experiences across consumer brands and digital business models, and a strategic perspective grounded in a deep knowledge of the travel industry, along with a broad and tenured background in corporate finance, long-term financial planning and capital markets. We look forward to his leadership and insight as we address the many opportunities to serve our consumers and partners across the travel ecosystem.”

Noonan joins Tripadvisor with more than 30 years of experience in various corporate finance and capital markets roles. He will join the company from Noom Inc., a consumer-focused digital health company, where he has served as CFO since October 2020. Prior to Noom, he served as SVP, finance for Booking Holdings Inc., where he led numerous corporate finance activities such as financial planning and capital budgeting, as well as investor relations. He has also worked in several capital markets roles at RBC Capital Markets, NYSE Euronex, J.P. Morgan and Bear Stearns & Co.
