About Chris Morris

After qualifying as a chartered accountant, Chris spent a number of years in corporate finance – initially as an advisor with Arthur Andersen and then as a principal with Airtours plc where he was one of a small team responsible for global M&A.

In 2004 Chris was part of a buy-out team that, with backing from ECI partners, acquired LateRooms.com for £20m. Initially CFO, Chris took the role of CEO following the sale of LateRooms to Tui Travel plc in 2006 for £108m. Staying with the business for a further 6 years, Chris expanded the business into Asia through the Asiarooms.com brand and into South America through Malapronta.com.

In 2013 Chris returned to the private equity world through the £38m MBI of Citation as CEO, again with backing from ECI Partners. Following a period of significant growth, the business was acquired by Hg Partners for £185m in February 2016. Chris remains CEO of Citation as the business continues to build on its success through this period of ownership.
