(Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading global provider of next-generation cloud-native SaaS & on-premise hospitality software solutions and services, today announced the appointments of Ben Curtis as Managing Director, EMEA and Matthew Prosser as Senior Sales Director in EMEA. Ben and Matthew are charged with accelerating Agilysys’ continued growth in the EMEA region.
Ben brings over 25 years of international hospitality experience in both property management and as a software solution sales executive, most recently as General Manager of Verteda Limited, an Agilysys reseller in EMEA. Ben has a proven track record of developing and executing business growth strategies and a commitment to customer service, most notably working with large customers in the Sports & Entertainment market.
Matthew recently held senior positions at Verteda, including Business Development Director and Sales Director, and was most recently Managing Director for MSL Solutions’ new UK subsidiary following MSL Solutions’ acquisition of Verteda. His hospitality career began over 25 years ago in the Far East and includes senior management roles with 5-star hotels as well as at solution vendor MICROS.
