Mike Stacy

ID90 Travel
CEO
Dallas, Texas

Mike Stacy is CEO of ID90 Travel, whose web-based SaaS platform fully automates airline employee space-available travel for carriers across the globe. In addition to automating the shopping and booking process for space-available travel, ID90 Travel is the first company in the space to provide airline employees the ability to easily purchase discounted hotels, rental cars, and cruises, along with a travel insurance policy tailored specifically to non-revenue travel. During his tenure at ID90 Travel, Mike has raised $3 million in venture capital.

 

Mike has been a leader in online technology since the late 90s, when he was hired in a marketing role in the very early stages of the development of travelocity.com. He rose to become SVP of Marketing while helping the company go public and through its purchase by Sabre Holdings. 

 

He left the world of travel for a challenge in the entertainment industry as SVP of Marketing for what at the time was Clear Channel Entertainment, now called Live Nation. 

 

With online travel in his blood, Mike took on a turnaround opportunity at cheaptickets.com and, as president of Cheap Tickets, helped them achieve first-time profitability, while also helping parent company Cendant complete the acquisition of orbitz.com and the consolidation of cheaptickets.com into the Orbitz family of brands. 

 

Mike’s first CEO role was at another turnaround situation, at groople.com, where he raised $13 million in venture funding, modernized the technology and executed the sale of the company to a mid-size travel management company. 

 

Mike serves on the board of the non-profit African Food and Peace Foundation, which is a trailblazing philanthropic community investing in groundbreaking education for women and girls in Uganda.
