Pegasus Solutions has named Steve Guthrie vice president, architecture and design; and James Charles, vice president, central reservation systems (CRSs) application development. The positions, announced by Pegasus’ chief information officer Bill Rose, were established as Pegasus responds to hotel demand for its powerful and stable technology solutions.
“Steve and James each bring nearly a decade of experience working with Pegasus to these roles. That translates to an invaluable understanding of both our solutions and our clients’ business,” said Rose. “Investing in the right technology leadership translates to investing in technology that will make a difference in how hoteliers work. Given the number of hotels using Pegasus Connect+ to compete for global business, and as we develop new solutions like PegasusView Market Performance Analytics, the need to leverage the institutional and industry knowledge Steve and James possess is essential.”
Guthrie’s technology career spans three decades, including nine years at Pegasus. Charles has been with Pegasus since 2008, prior to which he worked with the company as a software consultant. Both have been involved with the next-generation RVNG CRS since it was launched in 2008. Their work has been critical to the development of property management system and channel manager interfaces with RVNG, and to expanding the channels Pegasus hotel clients can market and sell room inventory through.
