The shift at CEO for Connecticut-based Priceline.com comes at an awkward time for the Priceline Group because Hennessy, who’d been on the job since 2015, was leading a turnaround plan for Priceline.com, which had launched a new and substantial marketing campaign early this year. In addition, the Priceline Group has its own CEO search under way following the resignation in late April of Group CEO Darren Huston. He left the company following a revelation that he the married executive was involved in a sexual relationship with an employee. Priceline Group chairman Jeffery Boyd is currently serving as interim CEO of the Group, which includes Amsterdam-based Booking.com as its largest brand, while a search for a new Group CEO is under way. Hennessy’s resignation does not appear to be related to the Group’s CEO search. The Group is believed to be looking for a CEO who has operated and scaled a global ecommerce company. Before becoming Priceline.com CEO in April 2015, Hennessy had been CMO of Booking.com so he doesn’t appear to have had the operational experience that the Group is looking for in a CEO candidate.
