. February 18, 2015

BOSTON, MA - FEBRUARY 18, 2015 - With demand for access to cellular networks for 3G voice and 4G data at an all-time high, the hospitality industry's mobile engagement expert, RoamingAround, has recruited distinguished hospitality veteran and former Ritz Carlton Hotel Company CIO Pam Angelucci to head its RoamBoost division as Senior Vice President of Operations. RoamBoost is a scalable Distributed Antenna System (DAS) solution for hotels that solves in-building cellular coverage problems throughout a property or in targeted areas, such as the lobby, guestrooms, meeting rooms or basement.

Angelucci, who will continue to be based in Atlanta, is responsible for RoamBoost business development and success, from installation and project management to ongoing innovation and penetration into new markets.

"Because RoamBoost has grown exponentially year after year, with most growth compounded over the past 24 months, the timing was right to establish it as a standalone business unit with a dedicated executive leading the way and bringing new innovations to market," said Michael Garvin, RoamingAround CEO. "Pam brings a wealth of industry expertise from former C-level roles and major consulting assignments at Morgans Hotel Group, Andre Balazs, West Paces and Capella. In searching for the right person to join RoamingAround, Pam's knowledge base, teambuilding capabilities, and stellar reputation among her peers are just some of her exemplary attributes that set her above the rest. We are thrilled to have Pam join us to continue the explosive growth of RoamBoost."

A proven IT professional, Angelucci has directed the information technology divisions for several leading companies, including Baker-Worthington and Whittle Communications, both in Knoxville, Tenn., and the Arizona Department of Commerce in Phoenix. She is a member of HTNG (Hospitality Technology Next Generation) and HFTP (Hospitality and Financial Technology Professionals), and was nominated in 2002 for the "Georgia CIO of the Year" award for dramatic reductions in costs associated with technology at the property level. Angelucci also is a certified facilitator for "Information Services as a Service Organization," a national training course for IT professionals, and is a paid international public speaker on Business to IT Relationship Management topics.

Angelucci established Hospitality Technology Consulting in 2003. The Atlanta-based practice has assisted hotel brands, independent hotels, resorts and hotel management companies with all aspects of technology needs, selection and implementation. It was during her role as a consultant to the Gale South Beach hotel in Miami, Fla., that she became familiar with RoamBoost.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
