iVvy continues to scale up its team for aggressive global expansion in the Sales and Catering SaaS industry.

iVvy, an Australian-based global provider of cloud-based venue and event management software, announce a number of key hires further building out their US branch with two new Vice Presidents of Sales, as well as the addition of a new Chief Operating Officer. Jennifer Barbosa (Hollister, CA) and Bryan Knapp (Chicago, IL) join the global iVvy sales force as part of iVvy’s continued North American focus and investment.

Drawing on 15 years of experience in hospitality management, Jennifer Barbosa believes what’s exciting about iVvy is the impact it can make for US-based venues as it transforms and streamlines their management operations.

“Coming from the industry, iVvy really excites me as a product that can streamline the entire process of booking a venue, and running events for both the venue and the client. I'm excited to see iVvy benefiting how venues run and grow their business.”

iVvy’s new Chief Operating Officer David Rose is an experienced technology executive with over 20 years of experience across a number of business sectors. He brings this experience to the executive team at iVvy adding to an already highly experienced team.

“I'm really excited to be joining at this time as we renew our push into the US market with a significant investment towards enhancing our products and growing our US team”, David says. Since announcing its initial entry into the US market in 2017 and the UK in 2019, iVvy has brought a number of global brands and iconic venues onto its platform. With no intention to slow down, iVvy believes venues across North America and the UK are ripe for disruption with venues across the world more than ever looking for new ways to improve processes and drive real business outcomes.
