Optii Solutions Expands Leadership at Austin, TX Headquarter
Optii Solutions welcomes Andy Cannon to lead the company’s finance group as the company grows and scales
Optii Solutions, the leading hotel operations software, has announced the appointment of Andy Cannon as Financial Controller. Cannon will help elevate the company’s finance function amidst rapid growth.
Cannon has more than two decades of finance experience and has joined Optii most recently from RW3 Technologies Inc., the global leader in Commerce Execution SaaS products, where he ran all aspects of the accounting department and was a key contributor to the company’s successful acquisition by Wiser Solutions.
In his new role, Cannon will be responsible for ensuring that Optii’s financial controls are healthy and the correct internal systems are in place to support the global growth. In the first half of 2022 alone, Optii has tripled its footprint in North America and the company continues to add some of the world’s most recognizable hotels and brands to its portfolio, including The Don CeSar and Nemacolin.
Cannon is not new to the hospitality world. He began his career at The Westin Seattle and, as a passionate traveler, he is excited about working with hotels again. Cannon said: “I am thrilled to make my way back to the hospitality industry, and joining Optii. I’ve been very impressed by the caliber of both the product and the team that brings it to life through my conversations with Optii. I am looking forward to supporting the company on its exciting journey ahead.”
Katherine Grass, Chief Executive Officer at Optii, said: “Coming out of the pandemic, we’re seeing growth across multiple regions, and based on conversations with hoteliers that’s likely to accelerate. With the anticipated pace of our growth, it’s imperative that we maintain a solid finance operation, and we believe that Andy is the right person to build and maintain that operation for us.”
