Sabre has bolstered its hospitality business with two key appointments.
Brian Jorgenson (pictured left) has been named as senior vice president of product management while Frank Trampert (pictured right) will lead the travel technology giant’s hospitality in the Asia Pacific region.
Jorgenson joins Sabre from financial services technology firm Fiserv while Trampert was most recently chief executive for the budget Tune Hotel Group in Malaysia, having previously worked for Wyndham Hotel Group in Hong Kong and Carlson Hotels.
Jorgenson will be responsible for maintaining Sabre’s leadership in central reservations and distribution solutions, while building upon the SynXis Enterprise Platform to expand the firm’s property management, guest experience, retailing and loyalty capabilities for hoteliers.
Sabre Hospitality Solutions president Alex Alt said: “Brian is a visionary business leader with the experience to bring to market innovative new solutions that will fuel our strategic growth.
“With Brian’s extensive knowledge and experience in the technology sector, he will be a tremendous asset as we continue to expand our industry-leading solutions with new and innovative capabilities that drive more value for customers and their guests.”
As managing director and chief commercial officer – APAC, Trampert will lead Sabre’s hospitality business in Asia Pacific.
Alt said: “Sabre Hospitality already has a strong track record and an amazing customer footprint in APAC, and yet we see significant opportunity to broaden our customer base by bringing our industry-leading customer relations and distribution solutions to more hoteliers throughout the region.
“Frank brings the vision, leadership and regional expertise we need to fuel our 2017 performance and longer-term growth trajectory in the region.”
