Graham Hills

Online Travel Professional, Jakarta/Singapore

About me

My name is Graham Hills and I am originally from Perth, Western Australia. I graduated from Curtin University and have been working in online travel since 2003 with experience in Australia, Singapore and Indonesia. I am currently the General Manager for Wego and HolidayIQ in Indonesia.

I moved to Asia at the end of 2007 for my first job outside of Australia at OctopusTravel where I managed the content team. I then joined Yahoo! Southeast Asia to run their travel business in Southeast Asia running the Yahoo! Travel sites in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

I joined the Wego and HolidayIQ team in February 2011 and am in the process of moving from Singapore to Jakarta.

Back home in Australia I started out in this field at what was then the Western Australian Tourism Commission which is now more commonly known as Tourism Western Australia. It was then July 2003 and my first role was as a content publisher on the project that would launch the first version of westernaustralia.com. From there I moved into the online marketing team which at the time had two people, myself and my manager.

In my earlier days as the online marketing officer I had a fairly broad role that allowed me to get a good taste for the online industry working on everything from database acquisition campaigns, email marketing, content management, brand campaigns, and looking after the day to day management of a government tourism website.

I then moved into a more focused role as Online Product Manager where I managed a major redevelopment of westernaustralia.com which had a strong focus on promoting a stronger brand proposition, a focus on usability and the information architecture as well as strong focus on SEO.

Outside of work I love to travel and experience new cultures. I love to hang out with friends, eat, drink and generally have a good time. I paddled for a couple of years with the British Dragon Boat team. I love sport and love to see a good AFL match (big West Coast Eagles fan) on TV when they’re shown on Singapore or Jakarta TV.
