VENZA is poised to continue our rapid growth and deliver world-class solutions in our home market of North America and the key markets of the BeNeLux and the DACH regions as well as Latin America,” said Barter. “One of my top priorities will be to continue to expand VENZA’s footprint in global markets, combining amazing solutions, like the VENZA System, with a local sales team that can adapt and tailor our programs to meet the unique regional needs of hoteliers. We will also lean into the development of VENZA’s sales team and expect to see significant growth in North America in 2023.”

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead VENZA’s sales team into its next phase,” added Barter. “The creation of the first executive leadership position solely focused on sales represents the company’s commitment to delivering an outstanding experience for clients with every interaction.”
