Eyres wins ex-Sidestep execs-looking-for-new-jobs competiton

Well, in fairness, European managing director Kevin Eyres left Sidestep in September last year, three months ahead of the meta search engine's takeover by Kayak.

Perhaps he saw the writing on the wall then?

But clearly he has done rather well for himself, being picked to run the new European division of business networking site LinkedIn.

So what of the remainder of the Sidestep employees?

We are told the Kayak acquisition will see a core team of around 20 Sitesteppers remain in various posts.

Almost certainly looking for new jobs at some point soon will be chief executive Rob Solomon, wo we understand is kicking around for a while but will be off pretty soon.

Time to join LinkedIn, Rob?
