Nitin Manchanda joins CuddlyNest as Chief Development Officer
Orlando Florida – We are pleased to announce that Nitin Manchanda, former Global Head of SEO at Omio and Trivago, will take over the role of Chief Growth Officer with immediate effect. Berlin-based Manchanda is popularly known as the “influential guru” in the SEO community and frequently hosts webinars for Semrush, including monthly SEO bytes with nitin.
The news comes after we announced our $ 6 million fundraising in October 2020, at a time when the rest of the travel industry was suffering from extended vacations and layoffs, and COVID-19 uncertainty was at its peak.

What really brings us together is our shared passion to serve, support and truly connect with travelers, ”commented CuddlyNest Co-Founder and COO Ritesh Raj. “Nitin’s impressive experience in scaling startups and his real commitment to consumers will no doubt propel us forward in our next phase of growth.”
Mancha’s career in the travel industry dates back to his time at Trivago and quickly became Global Head of SEO. He previously worked in e-commerce, helping Indian retail giant and regional Amazon competitor Flipkart grow its SEO traffic by a record 350%.
His primary focus at CuddlyNest will be to drive a growth strategy based on scalability, automation and strategic partnerships. He will be responsible for implementing marketing activities and raising awareness of the brand’s unique value in a saturated travel market.
“I’m really excited to be redefining the way people look and plan their trips. This opportunity is the perfect intersection of my passion for travel, startups and growth, ”said Manchanda.
