Jobcase, the social platform for the future of work, has recently announced the appointment of Ben Berman as General Counsel. In addition to advising senior management, he will direct all legal strategy, particularly strategies related to corporate growth. Ben comes to Jobcase after an impressive career as General Counsel and senior legal officer for KAYAK and its brands, and previously at Orbitz.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ben to our leadership team. His strong pedigree in industry-leading, high-growth consumer internet companies will help fuel the next phase of Jobcase's empowerment of the world's workers,” said Jobcase founder and CEO Fred Goff. “Ben is the latest in a string of key new hires this year at Jobcase, joining the likes of Senior Vice President of Product Jeff Chow from Trip Advisor and Chief Financial Officer Beth Clymer from Bain Capital. Ben's deep experience leading companies through the private-to-public journey, strategic acquisitions, and international expansion make him an invaluable addition to the executive team.”
Ben spent nearly a decade at KAYAK, the majority of which he served as its General Counsel where he managed the global legal team. Notably, Ben helped guide KAYAK’s significant international expansion efforts, supported their successful initial public offering and subsequent $2.1 billion sale to The Priceline Group (now Booking Holdings, Inc.), and managed the acquisition and integration of OpenTable and the Momondo Group. Ben most recently served as Associate General Counsel of Booking Holdings, Inc., which manages Booking.com, KAYAK, OpenTable, and other major online travel brands. Prior to his tenure at KAYAK, Ben spent many years on the Orbitz legal team as the organization scaled to nearly $1 billion revenue.
“I’m excited to join this outstanding team.
