New recruit strengthens travel tech firm’s expansion plans.
Criton, the UK’s first DIY app builder for the hospitality sector, has appointed Jo Wilson as Head of Sales. Jo will be instrumental in working with the existing team to source and convert sales for Criton as the company grows and continues to capitalise on the demand for guest-facing technology.
Jo, who joined the company in July, was previously a director of her own sales and marketing firm for 18 years and has worked with a variety of companies in the technology and hospitality sectors. Based in York, Jo will be instrumental in growing Criton’s customer base across the UK.
“As Criton continues to go from strength to strength I’m delighted to welcome Jo in our newly created role of Head of Sales. With offices now in Edinburgh and London, Jo will be instrumental in driving our global sales plan forward, capitalising on the strong levels of interest we continue to build” said Julie Grieve, Founder and CEO of Criton. “I’m delighted we’ve attracted someone of Jo’s calibre to Criton, her vast experience within the hospitality sector will be a real asset to our ever-expanding team.”
Criton enables property owners to digitise their guest information and publish their own white labelled guest portal. Once published they can update and add information whenever they need to, with these changes publishing instantly. Through integration partnerships customers can also embed direct messaging, in-room ordering and geo-location push notification technologies to allow guests access to all the information they require, directly on their own devices.
“Criton is in such an exciting place – changing the game for hoteliers and apartment owners that want to improve the experience for their guests,” said Jo Wilson. “There is so much potential for the company and I’m just delighted to be a part of such an ambitious and vibrant team.”
