Optii Solutions, the leading cloud-based hotel operations software, today announced the appointment of Dino Pietropaolo as Chief Technology Officer.
Pietropaolo will join the executive team and is a seasoned CTO who brings deep technical expertise and a strong track record of creating transformation and growth from his almost 20 years’ experience in the financial and digital industries.
Optii Solutions has been executing an expansive growth strategy and most recently opened a new office to accommodate its growing team in Austin, Texas, where Pietropaolo will be based. Testament to its strong growth, Optii Solutions has quadrupled the number of hotel rooms that it has added over the past year. In 2022 alone, the business has on-boarded 8 new hotels under the MCR, Pebblebrook, Rodd, and Star hotel groups.
Pietropaolo joins Optii Solutions from Neocova, where he was brought on as CTO to lead technology and product strategy to grow the business, and also to drive its market strategy from a product perspective. In his role, he helped to build a unified AI-driven analytics platform for financial institutions.
Prior to this, Pietropaolo was Senior Director of Solutions Engineering at ALTR, where he helped the business to address how it dealt with data governance. He also founded Good Dog Labs, an identity and access management business. Pietropaolo will bring with him a wealth of experience at established industry names SafeNet, Indentropy Inc., Venafi, Daon, and Proofpoint.

This is an exciting time for Optii Solutions as we are continuing to pursue a path of rapid global expansion, and Pietropaolo’s expertise in digital transformation will help us to achieve our vision of being the hotel operations provider of choice for all hotels both in the US and globally.”
Dino Pietropaolo, CTO, Optii Solutions, said: “Over the past 20 years I have helped businesses to use technology to unlock growth and lead their fields. I am excited to start this new chapter at Optii Solutions and look forward to collaborating with the team to evolve and grow the Optii Solutions offering while addressing scalability, flexibility, and integration.
“Hoteliers faced with labor shortages are looking to do more with less and as a result of this, the adoption of hotel operations technology has been steadily increasing. Optii is perfectly positioned to help the hospitality industry make better operational decisions with data and enable hoteliers to improve efficiencies through automation, and I look forward to being part of this journey.”
