GoCatch, Australia’s favourite on-demand taxi and ridesharing booking app, today announced that David Holmes joins the Company as CEO, effective immediately. Mr. Holmes brings to GoCatch more than 20 years’ experience in commercialising digital and disruptive technologies, with a long and varied career across global brands including eBay, Monster, Commonwealth Bank, Microsoft, Telstra, Hyundai, Nestle and HSBC. Having founded local digital marketing agencies including OneMedia, OneDigital, Isobar and iProspect in Australia, Mr. Holmes most recently served as CEO, and then, Chairman of CarAdvice.com.au, Australia’s largest independent automotive content publisher.

The GoCatch Board of Directors commenced the CEO recruitment process earlier this year, with the support of Co-Founder and former CEO Ned Moorfield. Mr. Moorfield will pursue a number of new ventures in the U.S and continue as a Director and major shareholder of the business. Mr Moorfield said: “I’m extremely proud of what our team has achieved over the past 5 years, building the company from little more than an idea and a pitch deck, to now being a leading player in the high growth, on demand transport booking market. I’m excited to now have the opportunity to pursue new opportunities overseas, including improving access for Australian founders and startups to overseas capital and markets, and I wish David all the best in his new role as CEO.”

GoCatch Chairman Bill Beerworth said: “GoCatch has proven that Australian innovation, technology and talent can transform the passenger and driver experience and attract a CEO with the calibre of David Holmes”. “The transport and logistics sector is being re-imagined right now and this is an opportunity to be right in the middle of that transformation. I am very excited by what GoCatch has done and where the platform can be taken next,” said Mr. Holmes.
