Duetto Expands into Latin America

NEW YORK—Duetto has expanded into Latin America with the appointment of Ricky Castoldi as director of sales for the region.

Castoldi brings more than 20 years of technology development experience and will lead the expansion out of Duetto’s office in Dallas. Duetto expects to announce the appointment of a service and support team based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in coming weeks.

Duetto’s cofounder and CEO Patrick Bosworth said, “We are happy to announce our Latin American push at a moment that seems uniquely ripe for Duetto’s solutions throughout the region. At an industry conference last month in Brazil, it was clear that the recent softening in regional economies, together with increases in supply and continuing pressures from OTAs, has squeezed hotel margins tighter than ever. We are looking forward to working with Latin American hoteliers, owners and asset managers who are ready to become more adept at forecasting demand, optimizing pricing and managing intermediary costs. We welcome Ricky to Duetto to help lead that effort. ”

Duetto has been expanding in the U.S. and internationally, after opening its European and Asia-Pacific headquarters late last year. Nearly 1,000 hotels and casinos in more than 50 countries have partnered to use Duetto’s revenue strategy solutions.

Castoldi comes to Duetto from his most recent role as VP of sales, Americas, for eRevMax. Prior to that, he was VP of supplier solutions at Lanyon, and previously held positions at Dolphin Dynamics and Pegasus. Castoldi has a Bachelors Degree from the Buckinghamshire Chilterns University.
