Michael McCartan, former chief executive of travel technology service provider eRevMax, has been named as London-based EMEA managing director of hotel profit optimisation software business Duetto.
The company opened its European headquarters in London earlier this year and subsequently announced the opening of a base in Singapore for the Asia Pacific region.
A $21 million funding round was agreed in July to continue its expansion into key markets around the globe. Accel Partners in the US led the round, with participation from Accel Partners in London.
Patrick Bosworth, chief executive of Duetto said: “We are delighted to welcome Michael, who brings a wealth of experience and has a proven track record in hotel revenue technology, product development and customer success.”
McCartan added: “Duetto’s vision for dramatically transforming the field of revenue management has taken hold in North America and is quickly extending around the globe.
“The company’s advanced, flexible solutions benefit independents and chain hotels alike.
“I look forward to developing a team with first class service capabilities to help hotels across EMEA realise their full revenue potential in the months ahead.”
