“With his extensive global leadership
experience and track record of delivering value to stakeholders, I look forward
to working with Ewout to further fuel long-term growth at Booking Holdings and
our brands. I would also like to extend my profound gratitude to David Goulden
for his impeccable leadership during his six years as CFO at the company. He
has been instrumental in driving numerous strategic and transformative
initiatives and contributing immeasurably to our company’s achievements in that
time. I am pleased that we’ll continue to benefit from his ongoing active
involvement with Booking Holdings.”
Prior to joining S&P, Steenbergen
was executive vice president and CFO of Voya Financial and served in other
leadership roles at ING Group around the globe.
“Booking Holdings sits at the
epicenter of digital travel innovation, and I am pleased to be joining
the company at such an exciting time for the industry and its stakeholders,” Steenbergen
said. “I look forward to working alongside the company’s strong leadership team
to continue the company’s growth, capitalize on the long-term opportunities in
front of us and achieve our strategic objectives.”
Goulden joined Booking Holdings – then called the Priceline Group –
in March 2018 from Dell Technologies.
