SAN FRANCISCO—Duetto has appointed Scott Edgington to the newly created position of chief revenue officer.
Based out of the company’s offices here, Edgington will be responsible for leading Duetto’s worldwide sales, third-party distribution and business development teams to create an organization skilled in addressing specific market requirements and a go to market model.
Patrick Bosworth, Duetto’s co-founder and CEO, said in a statement, “With the success of our customer deployments and continued demand from all segments of the hotel industry, sales and distribution has become a critical function. We welcome Scott to lead the effort in these areas, and look forward to his immediate positive impact.”
“I am delighted to join Duetto at this important moment in the company’s growth,” Edgington said in a statement. “Duetto has enjoyed sales and reputational success in a very short time, distinguishing itself as a leader and innovator in the rapidly transforming field of revenue management. Building on that success, and the strong culture within the company, we are building a truly 21st century sales and distribution model tailored to meet the needs of our market. Today it’s about ease of doing business, responsiveness to customer demands, flexibility, and operational excellence. We have learned much from the consumer side of the industry, and look to leverage many of those principles.”
Before coming to Duetto, Edgington was SVP of Worldwide Sales at Snaplogic, Inc., an enterprise cloud integration company. In his role, Edgington was responsibly for sales, technical account management, and an engineering team tasked with expanding the list of end points supported by the company. Prior to that, he was SVP of Worldwide Sales at Troux Technologies, Inc., and at TEALEAF, both sales-driven, Silicon Valley-backed, start-up enterprises. He has also held senior executive positions at Voltage Security, Inc., and BEA Systems, Inc.
Edgington has a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
