It will be led by the combined Executive Leadership teams from both businesses and headed by Pat McDonagh (pictured) as CEO.
“We’re delighted to have completed the acquisition and I’m looking forward to working with the new combined team to create something extraordinary. We’re laser-focused on delivering for our customers and that will be our priority over the coming months as we begin integrating the businesses,” said McDonagh
“We will take our time and ensure the benefits of this deal are delivered to our combined customer base; something we believe to be a truly unique and powerful offering to the market.”
Last year, Agiito launched a new live availability solution that enables meeting bookers to view rates and venue availability in real-time, before submitting their enquiry through its Meetingspro platform.
