San Francisco, October 8, 2013?– Duetto, the only cloud-based technology firm focused on revenue management for the hotel industry, further accelerated its rapid worldwide growth, by appointing Scott Edgington to the newly created position of Chief Revenue Officer.
Based out of the company’s San Francisco headquarters, Edgington leads, and is building, Duetto’s worldwide sales, third party distribution, and business development teams. He is charged with creating a world-class organization skilled in addressing specific markets requirements, and a go to market model, as the company scales, and its product adoption increases worldwide. Edgington brings close to 20 years of experience building innovative distribution models, both direct and indirect, to produce successful outcomes for rapidly growing enterprises.

It has seen rapid adoption of its flagship Duetto?Edge?product. Duetto?Insight, a product tailored specifically to the needs of select service and independent hotels, was launched last Spring.
Scott Edgington said, “I am delighted to join Duetto at this important moment in the company’s growth.” He continued, “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.”
