Sabre Corporation, the leading technology provider to the global travel industry, today announced the appointment of two executives for strategic roles in its hospitality business. Brian Jorgenson will serve as senior vice president of product management and Frank Trampert will lead Sabre’s hospitality business in Asia Pacific.
In his new role, Jorgenson will be responsible for maintaining Sabre’s leadership in Central Reservations and distribution solutions, while building upon the SynXis Enterprise Platform to expand Sabre’s property management, guest experience, retailing and loyalty capabilities for hoteliers. He comes to Sabre from Fiserv, a leading provider of financial services technology, where he held multiple senior leadership positions across product management, development, and service delivery.
“Brian is a visionary business leader with the experience to bring to market innovative new solutions that will fuel our strategic growth,” said Alex Alt, president of Sabre Hospitality Solutions. “With Brian’s extensive knowledge and experience in the technology sector, he will be a tremendous asset as we continue to expand our industry-leading solutions with new and innovative capabilities that drive more value for customers and their guests.”
As the Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer – APAC, Trampert will lead Sabre’s hospitality business in Asia Pacific, with responsibility for its financial performance, customer engagement and overall growth across the region. He has deep experience in both hospitality operations and technology in Asia Pacific including leadership positions with Wyndham Hotel Group in Hong Kong, Carlson Hotels across four continents, Brand Karma in Singapore, and most recently as the CEO for Tune Hotel Group in Malaysia.
“Sabre Hospitality already has a strong track record and an amazing customer footprint in APAC, and yet we see significant opportunity to broaden our customer base by bringing our industry-leading CR and distribution solutions to more hoteliers throughout the region,” said Alt. “Frank brings the vision, leadership and regional expertise we need to fuel our 2017 performance and longer-term growth trajectory in the region.”
