The growing corporate housing provider acquires former Amazon Business Manager, Carlos Abisambra, as its new CSO and promotes thought leader, Jay Triplett, to VP of Sales
DENVER (March 2017) – Travelers Haven introduces business expert, Carlos Abisambra, as chief strategy officer (CSO) and promotes Jay Triplett, former senior director of sales at the company, to vice president of sales in response to the housing provider’s rapid growth. The two new leaders will oversee the flourishing, Denver-based team of skilled professionals at both Travelers Haven (TH) and its sister company, Hotel Engine (HE).
“As the corporate housing industry steadily climbs in popularity, validated by Travelers Haven’s impressive year-over-year growth and success, we rise to the challenge by recruiting only the best talent in the industry,” said Elia Wallen, founder and president of Travelers Haven and Hotel Engine. “Carlos and Jay are no exception, both accomplished visionaries in their respective fields who inspire and motivate others to excel.”
Most recently serving as a business manager for Amazon and the CEO of Vortice Services, Carlos Abisambra brings more than a decade of B2B-focused expertise to the Travelers Haven team. In his new CSO role, the Harvard Business School MBA graduate will be responsible for executing an aggressive, scalable growth plan for the company to enhance digital optimization and forge consistencies in procedural processes among other strategic initiatives.
“I was fortunate enough to conduct a marketing optimization workshop at Travelers Haven in 2015, which led me on this new professional journey,” said Carlos Abisambra, CSO of Travelers Haven and Hotel Engine. “I’m truly impressed by what the company has achieved in such a short amount of time and see tremendous potential for accomplishing even more. It is an honor to be selected to accelerate that growth.”
After leading a results-oriented team to deliver impressive revenue growth, Jay Triplett’s new role as vice president of sales includes overseeing sales production while formulating new, meaningful relationships for both TH and HE. His relatable personality and success-driven demeanor make him a natural fit to uphold the high level of standards Travelers Haven clients are accustomed to.
“With such incredible leaders at the helm, our team of unprecedented professionals will have all the resources necessary to further elevate Travelers Haven’s curated user experience and exceptional customer service,” said Wallen. “We have great things planned for the immediate future.”
