Timeshare, vacation ownership club and resort technology developer SPI Software announces that George Stemper has taken up the reigns as CEO. Stemper’s considerable experience in building hospitality industry-related software and Internet services companies spans over 25 years, most recently with Onstream Media, a leading online service provider of live and on-demand Internet-based corporate communications services such as webcasting, video streaming, hosting and web conferencing technology. Previously, he served as Chief Operating Officer for Visual Data Corporation that merged with Onstream Media, and was instrumental in their restructuring and positioning as a leader in webcasting and streaming. Prior to that, he held positions as Senior Vice President with Hospitality Solutions International (HSI) and as the Chief Operating Officer and as Executive Vice President for MCORP, a software developer and product integrator having hotel technology, telecom, and enterprise-oriented business solutions.
“George will oversee all aspects of the company including operations and product enhancement; sales and marketing, strategy and direction,” says SPI Founder Karl Lange. “His extensive experience in the field of hospitality software – and particularly in web-based and mobile communications – make him perfectly well-suited to assist SPI in maintaining our position as the premiere software company in the timeshare resort industry.”
“I am very excited to be given the opportunity to lead this established and successful company to achieve even greater industry impact,” says Stemper. “I believe SPI’s superior technology and our talented team make that objective easily achievable. One of my chief objectives will be to continue to raise awareness about the outstanding customer service, cost savings and efficiencies resorts will recognize when using our software.”
