Criton, provider of a DIY app builder platform to the hospitality sector, has appointed Roz Hewitson in the new role of product manager.
Hewitson will help Citon manage its growth, maintain a competitive advantage and respond to the changing demands of the market, Criton said.
She was previously a senior project manager at Realise, where she managed multimillion pound projects for a wide range of clients.
Julie Grieve, founder and chief executive of Criton, said: “This is a very exciting time for Criton as we build a strong team with extensive industry experience to meet our global ambitions.
“I am delighted that Roz is joining our team. She has previously managed large-scale projects with high profile clients and I am excited to be working with her as Criton continues to grow through her knowledge of digital development and transformation.”
Hewitson added: “Criton is at the forefront of guest-centric travel tech and this is a fantastic time to join the company. The future potential for our products is significant and my role is to ensure that we will continue to be ahead of the game and respond to our customers’ needs.”
Criton enables property owners to digitise their guest information and publish their own fully customisable, white labelled app.
Through integration partnerships customers can also embed direct messaging and geo-location push notification technologies to allow guests access to all the information they require, directly on their own devices.
Following the announcement of a £5 million investment in November 2017, Criton says it has seen considerable growth and now employs 18 a figure that is expected to rise to 24 by the end of May.
