LuXplosion 2010: Mr and Mrs Smith Nominated for The Chic Hotel Experts Category

Mr. And Mrs. Smith, the boutique travel provider has some great names behind it and hence is not surprising how fast and how high the website has reached. CEO James Lohan’s first company Atomic organised several very grand London parties and corporate events.  He then co-founded a restaurant and members’ club the White House. Under his guidance, the company has forged ahead leaps and bounds. Their online booking service started in 2005, and an in-house reservations team came in 2006. They now have 75,000 active members, which is a huge number for a high end niche industry. They have also expanded area-wise, having branches, in USA, Australia, and even the Asia-Pacific region.

CTO Tamara Heber Percy, who is also the co-founder has also brought a lot to the company. An Oxford graduate with a degree in languages, she has been a sought after marketing consultant to big brands such as Ericsson, Honda, Unilever and Swissair. She was the brain behind the development of Mr & Mrs Smith’s e-commerce-enabled website. Editor-in-chief, Juliet Kinsman has written for various respected publications like The Observer and has become an asset for Mr. And Mrs. Smith. Apart from these three people, the website owes its success to a whole bunch of very dedicated and intelligent people. We appreciate all of them, as much as we appreciate this great website. You can follow them on Twitter.
