UK: Guestline has announced the appointment of Andrew Metcalfe to the new role of chief technology officer.

The company has also stated its aim to double its UK-based development team.

Metcalfe will be responsible for "ensuring the business accelerates its programme of innovation as one of the industry's premier technology driving forces, and will lead all product development, infrastructure, technical support and IT functions".

Andrew McGregor, Guestline CEO, said: "Our business has grown tremendously over recent months and we are committed to investing in our team. Andrew brings with him a wealth of experience and insight as we look to build our position as a leading innovative hospitality technology business in the market. His impressive leadership skills and forward thinking vision mean that our largest ever development programme is in good hands. This is a positive step forward in our ambitions for future growth."

Metcalfe said: "Guestline is a fantastic example of a company with huge potential to help its customers in so many ways. The hospitality industry is waking up to the ecosystem effect, using open APIs and integrations with 3rd party systems, and Guestline is ahead of the curve as this has been encouraged for years with the company's software offering. I see this moment of investment in people, tools and approaches as the chance to formalise our approach to this and many other areas of Guestline's capabilities. I aim for Guestline to be seen as a platform to enable innovation in hospitality software for all and will celebrate each success in that direction."

Previously, Metcalfe headed up London-based engineering at OpenTable, working for the company for over six years in roles including head of search engineering, and head of international engineering. He joins Guestline from Ve Interactive, an e-commerce technology company, where he held the roles of development director and most recently chief technology officer, overseeing teams in the UK, Spain, Romania and France.
