QikServe, the multichannel ordering and payment specialist, recently announced it has appointed Don DeMarinis as its CCO.

DeMarinis assumes the responsibility for QikServe’s global business development activities, and will support a substantial sales growth and recruitment drive within the U.S.

DeMarinis is credited as an established leader within the hospitality industry, boasting over 30 years of executive experience in the space. The most of this time was spent helping hospitality operators better invest in and utilize technology.

With his more than qualifying track record, DeMarinis brings a wealth of experience in engaging and delivering digital solutions for enterprise customers. He joins QikServe from the tech startup, Dovetail Solutions, where he served as their CRO.

At Dovetail Solutions, he developed their sales strategy to bring Dovetail’s “Gusto” POS platform to the US market.

Before that, DeMarinis worked at technology hub Oracle, where he served as VP, responsible for Oracle Hospitality’s global sports, entertainment, and foodservice management business.

“We are delighted to welcome Don to the QikServe team and are looking forward to working together to build a hugely successful global business,” said Daniel Rodgers, CEO, QikServe. “He will use his knowledge and experience to build a world-class sales team that will deliver key U.S. sales growth and help hospitality operators transform the way they do business.”

“I have witnessed several game-changing advances in hospitality technology over the years, but nothing as significant as the move towards mobility and self-service, which is not simply an evolution in technology, it is a shift in how operators engage with their customers,” said Don DeMarinis, CCO, QikServe. “QikServe is uniquely positioned to be the dominant player in the global marketplace for self-service and mobile solutions, with a solid product strategy, supported by a talented and passionate team that I am thrilled to join. The ‘point of sale’ is increasingly at customers’ finger tips and I’m joining QikServe to become an influential part of that evolution.”
