“We are very fortunate to attract investors with such great calibre,” said RRM’s CEO Chris Pitchford. “Robin Shaw joins us with a deep knowledge of the cruise sector whilst Paul Donoghue has extensive contacts within the financial world. With this type of support the business can grow rapidly and we can start investing heavily in all our digital platforms. I am extremely excited about Real Response Media’s future.”

“Real Response Media has developed a strong reputation in the cruise and aviation sectors and as we transition to travel normality both sectors will flourish again. The opportunity for me to advise the RRM team is something that I look forward to immensely” said Robin Shaw.

“It is an exciting time to be in the digital travel business,” said Paul Donoghue, “ I look forward to becoming a Non-Exec and board Director of Real Response Media and helping to drive the team to the success they deserve.”
