New York - June 24, 2014 - is excited to announce that Richard Dunbar has joined the team as Director of Business Development. Richard will be responsible for growing and tending to the partner ecosystem - the top hospitality technology and marketing organizations on the leading edge of the industry - to further the mission of helping hotels earn new guests.

Richard brings a rich background in hospitality to the team, having spent over six years in revenue and e-commerce with Starwood Vacation Ownership; several years with overseeing third-party integrations between channel management software, OTAs, and online booking tools; and most recently a tenure with Stash Hotel Rewards, where he integrated a custom loyalty solution into every aspect of hotels' operational and sales and marketing efforts.

"I see great opportunity in" said Dunbar. "Between the current product "Brand Advocacy," the newly released "Photo Advocacy," and the future product road map, I see that will not only continue to play an integral role in a hotel's marketing plan, but will completely reinvent the way hotels value and engage their guests.

"I am so excited to have Richard on my team again," said Edward St.Onge. "Richard has proven time and time again to be instrumental in helping companies seamlessly integrate into the landscape of hospitality technology. I feel that will finally be able to explosively grow our relationships with technology and marketing partners, matching the growth we have experienced with our hotel customers."
