CEO Mark Charlinski: "This is more than a new chapter. It's a whole new book." We can't wait to show our customers — and the industry — how our investments in innovation will drive revenue and help people have better travel experiences.

It's been a year of change for Leonardo.

  • We redefined our mission: To help people have better travel experiences.
  • We appointed a new CEO: Mark Charlinski, who has more than 14 years of travel industry experience.
  • We have a new parent company: Jonas Software, a leader in both the technology and hospitality markets.

Most importantly, we listened to our customers. They told us that the world around them was changing rapidly, and they needed a partner to help them navigate it. That's why we're investing in accelerated innovation and growth: So that we can deliver the solutions and leadership today's hoteliers need to stay current and provide memorable, meaningful travel experiences.

We're pleased to announce the result of that investment: four new products coming through Fall 2019 and Winter 2020.
