Proven revenue performance success with clients in city locations, flagged properties, and casino hotels creates opportunity to expand.
BEND, Ore. (November 2, 2017) - To further fuel their continued success, NAVIS today announced the expansion of their executive sales team to serve more segments of the hotel industry. Amber Fox, Julie Chapman, Lou Wolfson and Ryan Gervais have joined NAVIS as Systems Consultants dedicated to helping hospitality operators generate more profitable direct channel bookings, optimize team performance and strengthen relationships with their guests.
The latest additions to the NAVIS sales team come at a time of growth for the company. NAVIS’ powerful direct channel technologies are disrupting the status quo and empowering hoteliers to yield as much as twice the revenue from their existing demand. The appointments follow fast on the heels of several technological advancements and the recently announced preferred partnership with Two Roads Hospitality that mark the company’s position as a best-in-class integrated reservation sales and hospitality marketing platform.
“We are thrilled to welcome such knowledgeable and skilled talent with decades of experience to accelerate our reach and ensure that we continue providing the best revenue-producing solutions to the industry,” said Kyle Buehner, CEO of NAVIS. “With deep industry roots, each adds important new dimensions of expertise to our organization.”
Buehner added, “That established hospitality executives and companies like Two Roads Hospitality are gravitating to NAVIS is further validation of our pioneering solutions and services becoming a mainstream approach as hotels look to maximize marketing ROI, productivity, and profitability.”
For Amber, hospitality is a way of life, and she has immersed herself in it for her entire career.
