Serko today announced that corporate travel industry veterans Mike Daly and Matt Beck have joined the company’s North American team.
Daly joins as Vice President Sales and will oversee all business development activity for travel and expense in North America. Beck joins as Senior Director of Sales Operations and is tasked with providing strategic and operational leadership in the region. Both will report directly to SVP North America, Tony D’Astolfo.
“The reception to the Zeno platform in North America has been phenomenal, and I’m thrilled to have Mike and Matt join the team to help us execute on the opportunity in this market,” said D’Astolfo.
“Their knowledge, experience and subject matter expertise are second to none and will take our regional presence to the next level.”
Both Daly and Beck have previous, long-term tenures with industry players GetThere and Deem, working alongside D’Astolfo at both companies. Daly started his career with United Airlines, moving to sales leadership positions at Freebird and DVI. Beck began his career as a consultant for Bain and Company before joining the travel industry with Sabre. He most recently served as Director of Innovation at Travelport.
The appointments come at an exciting time for Serko, which recently announced a successful capital raise to further expand Zeno’s presence in North America and Europe and to extend the offerings for Serko’s travel management company partners.
Darrin Grafton, Serko CEO commented,
“2020 is lining up to be a watershed year for Serko. Zeno has struck a chord across the industry and we’re excited to further extend our presence in North America and Europe.”
