Luigi Zingarelli

Finance Director

Although Luigi only joined Snaptrip Group in 2021, it feels like he's always been part of the team, such is his open personality and his ability to talk about absolutely anything with passion.

Luigi joined as the company's first full-time Finance Director, ensuring we don't spend too much money on coffee machines, sweets or drinks in the pub. His day-to-day role sees him oversee some other, less important things like the financial side of acquisitions, financial and legal diligences, to help to facilitate the Group’s growth aspirations in addition to making sure people get paid!

Known as the ‘coolest person in finance’ (inside Snaptrip at least), Luigi has worked at the world's largest audit and advisory firms, such as EY, Deloitte and KPMG so he's pretty smart.

What the team say about Luigi...
'He's always up for a chat!'
