As of August 4th, 2021, AJS Hotels has selected VENZA to enhance their security and compliance position. As Louisville, Kentucky’s largest hotel owner-operator, with over 1,000 employees, ensuring the security of their properties, associates, and clients is at the forefront of their minds.
Teambuilding climbed to new heights when VENZA unveiled their first-ever Summit Challenge! Divided into two teams employees from across the company faced off in a step challenge with high stakes — the final count not only bolstered their team’s standing, it also raised money for an important cause, the caregiver respite program within Wounded Warriors Family Support.
While no one can know what tomorrow may bring, VENZA works to tip the scales of destiny toward an ever more comprehensive appreciation for the needs of the hospitality industry. They are doing this by recruiting top talent, placing them in positions of power, and getting out of their way. Coincidentally, these new leaders are all women. This is a welcome confirmation of the growing trend toward greater diversity in hospitality technology leadership.
VENZA®, the leading data protection, compliance, and training organization for the hospitality industry, announced it has acquired privately-owned CyberTek Engineering, an award-winning MSP (Managed Service Provider) that offers a wide range of business IT services and solutions. The purchase complements VENZA’s existing security solutions, enhances its position as an MSSP (Managed Security Services Provider), significantly increases its technical talent, and enhances its ability to serve its client base more comprehensively.
VENZA further cements its position as the industry’s go-to data protection awareness champion. How? They are hosting a global information security-focused quiz game-style competition. A first for the hospitality technology community, this series of matches has a whimsically fun atmosphere that makes the competition accessible even to those with a mere casual appreciation of the world of IT security.
VENZA hires from within appointing Dominique Williams to Customer Success Manager shifting from Senior Customer Success Coach and appoints Richard Ross to Accounting Manager from a part time Accountant to this new fulltime role. VENZA secured capital in Q2 2020 to expand its operations and is now hiring for multiple positions including a Customer Success Director, Technical Writer/Communicator, and VP of Sales among other positions across the company.
VENZA is not only surviving during the economic downturn but thriving as it secures capital to expand its operations in 2020. “Extraordinary companies find a way to grow during a downturn,” says Jeff Venza, Chairman & CEO “and we have big plans for expansion with this new infusion of cash,” said Venza. VENZA is expanding its MSP division through a combination of hiring new staff and the acquisition of another MSP business that will provide not only complementary services but also reinforce the services VENZA already provides its customers.
On the one-year anniversary since the announcement of the world’s first (and still only!) privacy management solution equipped with hospitality-specific templates, the partnership between Privacy Company and VENZA once again bears fruit. This time, they have crafted a 3rd-Party Management solution that assesses the security risks associated with vendors, both current and prospective. This solution provides hotel groups with an easy-to-use system for managing the many agreements they have with their vendors (e.g. MSAs, SLAs, DPAs, AOCs) and assessing each vendor’s security posture.
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – February 29, 2020 – Kayla Saldivar, Customer Success Manager for VENZA was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the “Customer Service Manager of the Year” category in the 14th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.
