NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 17, 2022 – Joseph Preciado joins Groups360 as senior vice president of technology, launching a new phase of rapid growth at the company’s corporate headquarters. Preciado brings more than 20 years of technology leadership experience to Groups360, where he will continue to scale operations based on increased demand for the GroupSync suite of products.
Before joining Groups360, Preciado led information technology operations at Asurion. Preciado’s deep expertise in leading teams to successfully scale and deliver value across global enterprises will help to scale the GroupSync solution and continue to elevate success for the company’s domestic and international customers.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of the innovation and progress that Groups360 is bringing to the group travel industry,” Preciado said. “I’m looking forward to working with GroupSync’s technology teams to enhance the platform and continue to scale rapidly.”
GroupSync’s enhanced electronic RFP capability empowers event planners to more efficiently search, source and book groups at over 200,000 properties worldwide. The single web-based solution provides greater access to hotel group inventory and rates for faster, smoother booking, and includes a proprietary RFP-free group booking option called Instant Booking.
“We’re excited to add Joseph’s leadership skills to our team,” said Jim Siegienski, senior vice president and chief technology officer for Groups360. “As we continue to scale our operations across the globe and refine our technology, his experience in building and scaling successful engineering will be essential as we continue to grow our global operations and enhance our platform.”
Groups360 was created with a singular goal — to empower meeting planners by bringing innovation, transparency and simplicity to the decades-old problem of booking groups. The company’s integrated technology solution, GroupSync™, enables suppliers to distribute inventory, engage with planners, and optimize group revenue. GroupSync also equips planners to search and shop hotels worldwide and to book rooms and space directly, online or through a simplified RFP process. GroupSync is the first distribution channel to offer online booking for both group hotel rooms and meeting space.
