Chief Growth Officer, SiteMinder
Dai Williams is the chief growth officer at SiteMinder, the global hotel industry’s leading guest acquisition platform, where he is responsible for the growth and diversification of the disruptive Software-as-a-Service model that placed SiteMinder among technology pioneers. As well as SiteMinder’s entry into new markets, Dai oversees new revenue streams that leverage the US$35 billion (AU$53 billion) worth of hotel bookings that flow through SiteMinder’s platform, and a partner network that generates in excess of 100 million reservations annually for SiteMinder’s 35,000 hotel customers around the world. Prior, Dai filled several key roles that spurred SiteMinder’s growth from its earliest days. After establishing SiteMinder’s first overseas office, in London, he led the global sales organisation, and led the expansion of the company’s EMEA operation as managing director for the booming region.
