“It was simply 'love at first sight,'” said Jennifer Chua. “When Francis and Michael shared with me their observations and the analysis of the travel and tourism industry, I was shocked at the high concurrence with my understanding of the market and how their vision of Smoove Xperience can plug the gap in the travel industry. The vision of this travel super app that integrates the traveler’s journey into a single chain on the Company’s platform. I was sold straight away, and did not take long to accept the offer to lead the Smoove Xperience team. The Smoove Xperience model is almost exactly how I would have done it if I were to set up my own traveltech company. I could not be any happier.”
