AltoVita expands international female leadership team

UK: Cloud-based global accommodation platform AltoVita has appointed Jessica Land as head of client partnership to lead AltoVita’s expansion in global mobility and business travel and Tara Scrivener as global accounts manager.

The company, which claims to be building the largest inventory in the corporate accommodation sector and already has a network of one million properties worldwide, is led by female co-founders Vivi Cahyadi Himmel [CEO] and Karolina Saviova [COO].

In 2021, the company promoted Caroline Boyle to VP of product customer success, part of the leadership team’s commitment to promoting from within, and hired Ashley Jacobs as VP of marketing to lead the company’s internal and external brand and communications.

Jessica Land, head of client partnerships at AltoVita, said: “I am honoured that Vivi and Karolina have empowered me to spearhead the global business development team. AltoVita’s leadership team has trusted my flexible routine to support raising a young family.

“At a time when many parents are obliged to take a step back in their career, AltoVita has supported me with the opportunity to develop,” she added.

Tara Scrivener, global accounts manager at AltoVita, said: “AltoVita’s dedication to deliver excellence for its customers on a daily basis is inspiring, and I am so proud to be part of the fantastic international team. The plan to grow the client partnership and account management team by 300 per cent YoY strengthens our position to expand our mutually beneficial partnerships across both global mobility and business travel.”

Vivi Cahyadi Himmel, co-founder and CEO of AltoVita, said: “All around the world, women are doing wonders in technology and I’m so proud AltoVita is part of that movement. We are proud of our DEI culture and we are committed to cultivating career development to our female leaders via the Promote From Within programme, mentorship, and family support.

“Our smart, safe, and sustainable approach is what sets AltoVita apart and I look forward to enriching our diverse and globally dispersed team with more talent hires to support our future success,” she added.

Earlier this month, AltoVita announced its expansion into over 1,200 cities and 165 countries globally and it now plans to double the number of property operators with which it currently works, in order to reach 3,500 hospitality partners in 2022.
