After immigrating to Australia from Russia at age 17, Yury developed a passion for computers and strategy games.
This passion drew him to the University of Technology Sydney, where he studied Computer Science and met fellow HotelsCombined co-founder, Brendon McQueen.
Before co-founding HotelsCombined in 2005, Yury spent five years working at HotelClub where he was primarily responsible for the company’s online marketing activity.
He was also involved in co-founding and investing in a number of other online businesses including ProductReview.com.au.
Yury is currently responsible for overseeing the strategic growth of HotelsCombined within key markets. Yury’s favourite hotel is Thailand’s Rasananda Resort Koh Phangan.
