Pegasus Solutions has named Mark Swetman vice president, global sales, Americas, where he will assume leadership of the sales team serving North and South America. Swetman, who has more than two decades of experience in hotel sales, previously served as global director of sales for Open Hospitality, a division of Pegasus Solutions.
“It’s important that the people telling hotels what they ‘need’ are actually able to relate to the day-to-day challenges of hoteliers in today’s market,” said David Millili, chief executive officer of Pegasus Solutions. “In the year since I was named CEO, and as a former hotelier, we’ve taken measures to place actual hotel people in direct contact with our hotel clients and prospects. Mark is both a seasoned hotelier and consultative salesman who brings this kind of understanding to this important role.”
Before joining Open Hospitality, the 20-year veteran was the complex director of sales and marketing for Hilton Hotels of Parsippany in New Jersey. He has also served as the regional director of sales and marketing for Dolce International Hotels & Resorts.
