Sales Manager

At SevenRooms, it’s been exciting to see the conversation shift from a data-driven system being a ‘nice to have’ to a ‘must have.’ I joined SevenRooms because I was hyper aware of the pain points in the industry around reservation, seating and guest management technology after having lived it in my day to day for years. More importantly, I joined because I believe in the vision of what we’re building -- and know we’re changing the way the industry operates, one restaurant at a time.

When you’ve worked in the fast-paced restaurant world, the organized chaos of a tech startup is actually very similar - and it was an easy transition! We're building a platform that helps our restaurant clients provide amazing, above and beyond hospitality experiences to their guests. If there’s one thing I have learned, it’s that hospitality is a universal language that pervades so much of our everyday lives and interactions -- and that’s pretty magical.
