California: Cloud based travel technology company BookingPal has announced the addition of Agustin Fiori to its management team.
Fiori is the former chief operating officer of short-term rental channel manager Rentals United.
As the COO of the company, he oversaw the daily operations of the company and designed the organisational structure to enable the company to scale. Fiori also held the VP of sales role, managing all sales initiatives and establishing new strategic partnerships with various technology companies.
Fiori was most recently head of supply at Traum-Ferienwohnungen [part of OYO Vacation Homes], one of the leading European online marketplaces for vacation rentals, where he was responsible for all sales and business development initiatives.
BookingPal founder and CEO, Alex Aydin, said: “Agustin brings deep industry experience in vacation rental distribution and channel management technology to BookingPal. His leadership will add valuable expertise to our team and will help BookingPal drive innovation and continued growth as the vacation rental industry’s distribution technology leader.
“I look forward to working with Agustin to bring our vision of providing the building blocks for the next generation vacation rental PMS platforms to life,” he added.
Fiori will be heading the operations of BookingPal, which recently introduced the ChannelConnector API solution in Europe. ChannelConnector is a privately labelled channel and revenue management solution that gets fully embedded within the PMS, allowing direct connectivity to all major OTAs and providing PMS platforms with the opportunity to enhance and expand natively the capabilities of their software.
Simon Lehmann, BookingPal board member and CEO of AJL Atelier, said: “We are very fortunate to have been able to motivate Agustin to join the BookingPal team in Europe. His experience and know-how in our industry is extremely comprehensive, from which all our customers will benefit.”
Fiori said: “BookingPal provides the most advanced and comprehensive vacation rental distribution technology in the industry to drive value and success for our customers. I know first-hand the critical and growing role technology plays for our customers.
“It’s a critical solution for our vacation rental property managers, and BookingPal certainly has un-matched capabilities,” he added.
