Carlson Wagonlit Travel has appointed David Falter as president of RoomIt, the company’s hotel distribution division.
Based in RoomIt’s Chicago office, he will report to Kurt Ekert, president and chief executive of CWT. Scott Brennan, who led the launch phase of the business, will become chief growth officer of RoomIt.
Falter, a six-time chief executive and board director, joins from Antenna International, where he was president and chief executive, and he was also previously managing partner of Acorn Growth Partners Inc. He is also a non-executive director at BizPay.
“Dave brings a wealth of business acumen and experience to the team, and I am delighted to welcome him to CWT,” said Ekert.
“He has a terrific track record of leading growth, and with his technology and travel sector background, I am confident he will accelerate RoomIt’s performance, while Scott will focus wholly on executing our growth plans.”
