Web mogul brings in Citypress for latest venture

The millionaire web entrepreneur behind dot com success story Laterooms.com has brought in Citypress as he launches his newest online venture.

Steve Walsh was hired Citypress’ Manchester office to promote Quote.co.uk, a ‘quote engine’ that allows users to find out the cost of local tradesmen and suppliers via one single enquiry. Visitors to the site will be able to make recommendations and rate the services of plumbers, builders and other businesses.

Citypress will support Walsh as the site launches early next year with a full service campaign.

Walsh and his two brothers launched Laterooms.com in 1998 as a challenge to Martha Lane Fox’s holiday portal Lastminute.com. Tour operator First Choice bought the hotel booking website in 2006, netting the Walsh brothers an estimated £17m.
