Kiwi.com appoints Daniela Chovancová as media relations manager for the CEE region
26 January 2023, Prague – Travel-tech company Kiwi.com announces another new addition. Daniela Chovancová, who previously worked at Alza.cz as a spokesperson, joins the in-house communications team. At Kiwi.com, she will be responsible for the company’s PR strategy, communication with media, and agency coordination in the CEE region.
Chovancová joined Kiwi.com in January this year after two years with Alza, where she led the public relations team and was responsible for PR activities across other CEE markets. Prior to that, she worked for 15 years at Havas PR Prague, where she was responsible for IT/Telco, FMCG, and finance clients, including Google, insurance company AXA and others.
“I am excited that Daniela is strengthening the Kiwi.com communications team at a time when the business is seeing accelerated growth and we are strongly focused on building the Kiwi.com brand and consumer PR in our strategic markets. Daniela has valuable experience in technology and e-commerce areas and proven results in defining communications strategies”, Andrew Parker-Blagg, Vice President of Brand and Global Communications Kiwi.com.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to join Kiwi.com in times when the company is going to take the CCE consumer PR to the next level. I am looking forward to the challenge of utilizing my experience gained in the rapidly growing e-commerce industry in a more international context. We are going to work together with the internal creative team on bringing engaging PR activations and being closer to our customers in the key CEE markets,” Chovancova added.
The internal team of Kiwi.com has already been strengthened last year by establishing an internal creative team led by Chris Wechsler who joined Kiwi.com together with Jiří Kirchner, Lucie Vestfalová, and Martin Gluvňa. Following the introduction of a new brand identity, the company is strengthening their “go to market” strategy by adding TV advertising to its media mix in Czechia and Poland that complements increased investment in existing social and digital advertising as well as wider consumer activation in key European markets.
