As CIO, DiFonzo will have responsibility for Sabre’s enterprise technology organization, as well as corporate information technology, and risk and security functions.

DiFonzo brings to Sabre a nearly 30-year career in technology leadership, including most recently, eight years at Syniverse, a global provider of communication and information services for network operators, where during his tenure he served as both chief technology officer and CIO. He previously spent 20 years at Convergys/Cincinnati Bell Information Systems, leading architecture and product development teams, among other assignments. He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Central Florida.

 

 

“The travel industry’s reliance on technology will only grow and Sabre sits in the middle of an ecosystem that can only add more and more value to its customers,” said DiFonzo. “The Sabre team has a strong reputation and I look forward to leading a core function of its operations that is critical to its customers.”
