Duetto Announces Michael Schäffner as Head of its New Office in Germany
London, March 29, 2017 — Duetto, the market leader in hotel profit optimization technology, announced today that it has appointed to Michael Schäffner to head sales and service in the “DACH” region of German-speaking countries of Europe: Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Schäffner is based in Munich and can be reached at Schaeffner@duettoresearch.com. The announcement comes as Duetto further accelerates its growth throughout Europe, where its cloud-based Revenue Strategy solutions are already in place at more than 700 hotels in 20 countries.
“We are happy to welcome Michael to Duetto,” said Duetto CEO Patrick Bosworth. “Duetto’s GameChanger application enables hotels to fully optimize revenue and manage distribution complexity, and our expanding suite of cloud-based solutions provides hotels with unprecedented tools for enhancing personalization and building loyalty in a rapidly changing and highly competitive marketplace. We look forward to Michael’s contributions as we continue to help hotels worldwide achieve new levels of excellence in Revenue Strategy.”
“I am pleased to join Duetto at this important and dynamic moment in the company’s growth,” Schäffner said. “From big brands to regional operating companies and smaller boutique properties, hotels in central Europe offer distinctive experiences in wonderful locations, but often lack the tools to optimize price and build loyalty among guests. I look forward to introducing the benefits of Open Pricing and Revenue Strategy to support their growth in the years ahead.”
Schäffner joins Duetto with more than 10 years of management experience in the hotel industry across Europe. He most recently served as Director of Sales and Marketing at Seranata Intraware and before that held several sales management positions at Nor1. He also held property management positions at distinctive hotels in Frankfurt and in the USA. Schäffner is active in industry associations and networking groups throughout Europe. He is a Lecturer at Ravensburg University of Cooperative Education, Ravensburg, Germany, from which he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
