Israel: Tel Aviv-based property management platform Guesty has announced the appointment of David Aber as its new chief financial officer [CFO].
Aber has preciously held equivalent roles as CFO at investing community service Seeking Alpha, Taboola, Powermat, Finjan and DSP Communications.
Founded in 2013, Guesty serves the short-term and vacation rental industries, as well as boutique hotels, providing an end-to-end solution for property managers and management companies to simplify the complex operational needs of short-term rentals. Users can manage listings from a number of online travel agencies [OTAs], such as Airbnb, Booking.com, Agoda and TripAdvisor, and use Guesty’s guest-centric tools ranging from dynamic pricing tools, to payment processing, guest communication services, contactless check-in technology and more.
Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Guesty’s team has nearly doubled in size to more than 500 employees, working across 13 offices around the world.
The company also acquired two property management software competitors in the shape of MyVR and Your Porter, as well as raising $50 million in Series D funding last April.
Aber said: “I’m excited to help Guesty continue its exponential growth, development and expansion into parallel verticals. As the lines between traditional hospitality and short-term rentals continue to blur, Guesty’s software and platform offer best-in-class management tools for everyone from casual hosts, to professional property managers, independent boutique hotels and enterprise clients.
“It’s an exciting time and I look forward to working with this world-class team to further accelerate Guesty’s growth and potential,” he added.
