Expedia’s European GC leaves company amid spate of in-house moves

Expedia is currently without a legal head after European general counsel Keith Krasny left the online travel booking operator.

Krasny left the company last week, but his destination is unclear. He himself replaced Expedia legal chief Rupert Hopley, who has joined Informa as company secretary and is understood to have transferred to the publishing group’s headquarters in Zug, Switzerland.

A source at the company confirmed Krasny’s departure, saying: “The replacement – Keith Krasny – left last week.”

At Informa Hopley replaces general counsel and company secretary and former CMS Cameron McKenna partner John Burton, who joined commodities trader Glencore International as company secretary in September.

Another former Informa general counsel, Rachel Jacobs, has left the company to join Macmillan Publishers as its first group general counsel, replacing legal director Oliver Brice, who is moving into consultancy.
