Sabre appoints new president of hospitality solutions
Joining Sabre back in 2014, Clinton Anderson previously served as the senior vice president of strategy
Travel technology provider Sabre Corporation has appointed Clinton Anderson as president of Sabre Hospitality Solutions (SHS).
Starting in his new role on 7 August, 2017, Anderson will succeed Alex Alt, who has since left Sabre to take on an executive position at another firm.
Anderson is tasked in overseeing Sabre hospitality business, while also positioning the company to take advantage of the technological opportunities within the market segment.
Sean Menke, Sabre's president and CEO, said: "Clinton has demonstrated his tremendous value and executive skills leading initiatives and taking on strategic projects across the company over the past three years, working effectively with customers and employees alike.
"Having someone of Clinton's calibre already on the Sabre team allows a seamless transition as he steps into this new role and builds upon the outstanding organisation and opportunities that Alex has created during the past five years he's been at Sabre. Sabre has identified the hospitality sector as a key engine of growth and Alex has also positioned the company for tremendous opportunities."
Joining the company back in 2014, Anderson previously held the post of senior vice president of strategy and helped drive the unit's technology, business and investment strategy initiatives.
Before joining Sabre, Anderson co-founded Emerson/Anderson, a private investment fund for small cap businesses, and also served as a partner at Bain and Company.
Commenting on his new appointment, Anderson shared: "Growing the Sabre hospitality business and taking advantage of the technology opportunities in the sector has been a key focus in building Sabre's business strategy.
"We have leading technology solutions and intend to continue to build a portfolio that will allow us to scale and work with hotel operators of all sizes and across the globe. Alex should feel very proud of what he has accomplished, and I welcome the chance to take the reins and continue to drive Sabre's hospitality business to even more success."
