Growing travel tech firm Criton has appointed Roz Hewitson in the new role of Product Manager as the company continues to expand.
Roz will be instrumental in ensuring that the development of the UK’s first DIY app builder for the hospitality sector maintains its competitive advantage and responds to the needs of the market.
Ms Hewitson, who joined the company in March, was previously a Senior Project Manager at Realise, where she managed multimillion pound projects for a wide range of clients; from business transformation to large scale UX, design and technical builds.
Criton enables property owners to digitise their guest information and publish their own fully customisable, white labelled app. Once published they can update and add information whenever they need to, with these changes publishing instantly. Through integration partnerships customers can also embed direct messaging and geo-location push notification technologies to allow guests access to all the information they require, directly on their own devices.
Following the announcement of a £5m investment in November 2017, Criton has grown significantly and now employs 18 with staff levels expected to rise to 24 by the end of May.
Julie Grieve, founder and CEO of Criton, said: “This is a very exciting time for Criton as we build a strong team with extensive industry experience to meet our global ambitions. I am delighted that Roz is joining our team. She has previously managed large-scale projects with high profile clients and I am excited to be working with her as Criton continues to grow through her knowledge of digital development and transformation.”
Roz added: “Criton is at the forefront of guest-centric travel tech and this is a fantastic time to join the company. The future potential for our products is significant and my role is to ensure that we will continue to be ahead of the game and respond to our customers’ needs.”
