Revinate, the software as a service (SaaS) company that helps hotels reinvent the guest experience, today announced Dan Hang has joined as its Chief Product Officer.

"Dan's experience and leadership skills allow us to speed product innovation, expand into new markets and deliver exceptional customer value. I couldn't be more excited about the future of Revinate."
Ashton will stay on as a key board member and advise the company on strategic initiatives. Marc Heyneker, CEO said, "Jay and I have been lockstep in our thinking ever since we founded the company 7 years ago. It's an incredible win-win to have Jay's continued contributions while gaining a proven executive like Dan who has helped take companies of our size to the next level."
"The ability to help hoteliers own the guest relationship and drive more direct bookings is an incredible opportunity. I'm thrilled to be part of a brand that has industry recognition for product innovation, employee culture and customer success," said Hang.
