Six individuals have been chosen by HTNG’s Vendor member community to represent their companies on the organization’s Vendor Advisory Council (VAC).

HTNG’s Vendor Advisory Council facilitates communication and alignment between HTNG’s most engaged vendors and the hospitality IT executives serving on the organization’s Board of Governors. The Council is made up of 15 representatives, each serving a three-year term. Starting this year, the VAC decided to add an additional seat dedicated to the growing HTNG Startup community.

There were 18 candidates nominated for this year’s five available positions in the general election and six candidates nominated for the single additional Startup seat. The new and re-elected members joining HTNG’s Vendor Advisory Council are:

  • Larry Birnbaum, VP Global Hospitality, Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS Company
  • Carson Booth, CEO, Snapshot GmbH
  • Florian Gallini, Group CEO, INTEREL
  • Vanessa Ogle, CEO, Enseo
  • Luis Segredo, CEO, Data Travel
  • David Berger, Founder and CEO, Volara *Startup Seat

Now consisting of sixteen members, the HTNG Vendor Advisory Council will continue to ensure that HTNG can address the needs and concerns of members who are technology providers in the hospitality technology industry.
