German travel software specialist Peakwork is opening an office in Singapore.
Head of the Asia Pacific region will be Tony Marshall, who joins the company from Orbitz Partner Network where he was head of Asia Pacific.
Company chief executive, Ralf Usbeck, said: “Last year Peakwork started its market activities in Singapore and Asia. Since that time we have met numerous very interesting companies.
“We are happy to have our representatives now in the market and especially with Tony Marshall we have won an internationally recognised expert with great experience and best contacts in the travel industry.
“In the interests of our worldwide customers and partners, the international expansion of the Peakwork distribution network increases supply and sales volumes.”
Marshall said: “I am very excited by the technology Peakwork offers. It is worldwide unique and I am very enthusiastic to bring this software and sales opportunities into the Asia Pacific market.
“This region stands for a valuable travel offer and enormous power in travel supply. With the [Peakwork] Player Hub technology, these suppliers have the chance to connect to global distributers, OTAs and meta searchers such as Google, Kayak, Trivago, just to name a few.”
