Jeff Hiscox has been hired as the new CEO. Hiscox has an extensive hospitality technology background with a track record of growing revenue and achieving results, according to his new company. Previously, Hiscox served as president and CEO of Newmarket International in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where he oversaw significant growth.
