Actabl, the leading hospitality software company dedicated to empowering hotels with actionable insights and solutions, has recently promoted and hired 14 women to senior leadership, director, and managerial positions.  Despite women making up 51.2% of the hospitality workforce according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 30% of leaders in the industry were women. At Actabl, women account for 41% of its overall workforce and now represent 43% of the company’s leadership team at the director level or higher.

These 14 businesswomen bring forth impressive industry expertise and a collective vision to further cultivate the company’s products, talent, and customer relations.  Recent promotions and hirings include: Erica Peterson, Vice President of People; Lindsey Goedeker, Senior Vice President of Sales; Catherine Marquez, Engineering Manager; Kenza Sebbar, Director of Revenue Operations; Sreedeepika Gopalakrishna, Software Support Engineer III; Jessica Yacone, Director of Strategic Customer Success; Giovan Montanaro, Director of Customer Experience Operations; Diana Osuna, Senior Director Enterprise Customer Success; Paige Wendryzk, Key Customer Success Manager; Brianna Leclerc, Senior Product Marketing Manager; Grace Diaz, Operations Manager; Megan Yagoda Kaplan, Vice President Account Management; Daniella Huang, Vice President Learning & Enablement; Esdra Rowe, Accounts Receivable Manager.

"In both the hotel and tech industries, ensuring women consistently have a seat at the table is crucial, given historical gender disparities in leadership in particular," said Cristina DeVito, Chief Financial Officer at Actabl. "These promotions and hires mark a transformative shift in the hotel technology sector, where women now stand as influential and impactful leaders in shaping its future."

Actabl recognizes the importance of ensuring its team represents both its customers and their guests by incorporating diverse perspectives into senior management, bringing a variety of insights and a wealth of knowledge to the forefront. Actabl’s commitment to cultivating an inclusive workforce similarly shines through its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs, including monthly educational sessions, speaker presentations, and employee resources designed to unlock the full potential of every team member.

"At Actabl, we are deeply committed to not only increasing the representation of women in leadership roles but also ensuring that these positions are influential platforms for change,” said Erica Peterson, Vice President of People. “By empowering women leaders and embracing diversity, we are setting new standards for the industry and cultivating an environment where unique perspectives drive innovation and success. It's essential that we continue to champion diversity and inclusion across all levels of our organization, creating opportunities for women to excel and lead."

These promotions exemplify Actabl’s dedication to fostering a culture of excellence, setting a powerful example for the broader industry, and driving positive change and innovation. At Actabl, women aren’t just a part of the conversation—they’re leading it. Actabl is proud to be a Supporting Sponsor of ForWard Annual Conference, AHLA Foundation’s annual conference to recognize the women of the hospitality industry, this week in Chicago.
