HomeToGo appoints Christina Smedley to its Supervisory Board

Luxembourg, 22 June 2022 - HomeToGo SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: HTG), the marketplace with the world’s largest selection of vacation rentals, announced today that the Supervisory Board of the Company has co-opted Christina Smedley, Co-founder and Chief Marketing & Communications Officer at Lightspark, as member of the Supervisory Board. Her career spans additional leadership roles in marketing and communications at Facebook/Meta, PayPal, Amazon and RobinHood as well as leading the global consumer marketing practice at Edelman. Smedley will replace Thilo Semmelbauer of Insight Partners, effective 1 July 2022, following Semmelbauer’s resignation from the Supervisory Board.

Christoph Schuh, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of HomeToGo: “We’re thrilled to welcome Christina Smedley to our Supervisory Board. With a wealth of expertise in marketing, communications and brand, her counsel will be extremely beneficial as we help build HomeToGo as a global brand and continue on its journey to become the go-to destination for vacation rentals. I would like to personally thank Thilo Semmelbauer for his dedication and trust over the years, and especially all of his valuable guidance while serving on the Board.”

Thilo Semmelbauer, Managing Director, Insight Partners: “It has been an honor to serve on HomeToGo’s Supervisory Board, and to be a core part of the team’s journey going public in this past year. I have the utmost confidence in HomeToGo’s Management team and the long-term growth opportunity ahead, as demonstrated by their impressive financial results this year thus far. With Christina Smedley’s deep roots in building global brands, I see her as a highly valuable successor for my seat on the Board.”

Smedley brings extensive marketing and brand experience to HomeToGo’s Supervisory Board, currently serving as Co-founder and Chief Marketing & Communications Officer at Lightspark, a new company created to explore, build and extend the capabilities of Bitcoin. In her previous position as CMO of Robinhood, Smedley led integrated marketing, communications and content for the trading platform, departing shortly after its IPO. Her career includes prominent leadership positions at Facebook/Meta, PayPal, Amazon and Edelman.

Christina Smedley, appointed member of the Supervisory Board of HomeToGo: “I’m very excited to be joining HomeToGo as a member of its Supervisory Board, a brand that has skyrocketed in the past few years to be a key leading player in travel. The promise of short term rentals in the accommodation industry combined with HomeToGo’s growth since the pandemic demonstrates that its trajectory as a global consumer brand has only just started. I look forward to advising and working closely with HomeToGo’s Management Board, fellow Supervisory Board members and talented team.”
