Pronto joins Love Home Swap at its London headquarters just two years after its acquisition by RCI, one of the world's largest vacation exchange companies. The hot London-based startup is revolutionizing the home sharing market by providing an easy and secure way for adventurous travelers to choose where they want to go, set up a swap with another traveler and then sit back and enjoy a hassle-free holiday without a hefty accommodation bill.
Pronto joins Love Home Swap from Casual Dining Group, where she was Chief Customer and Digital Officer for the company overseeing more than 250 restaurant locations across the United Kingdom. She has more than 20 years experience in blue chip companies and start-ups in the travel and hospitality, retail, technology, and E-commerce industries. She has specific expertise in developing digital innovation and growth strategies in consumer and multi-channel businesses.
Olivier Chavy, President of RCI, said:
"Célia is joining Love Home Swap at the perfect time as the company moves from the startup phase to accelerated growth. The home sharing market is becoming increasingly popular and we're in a great position for travelers to take advantage of the upscale home offerings enjoyed by Love Home Swap members around the world."
A native of Mozambique, Pronto holds an MBA from the University of Hull in the U.K., and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Natal (Durban) in South Africa. She speaks four languages, and serves on a number of boards as a non-executive director.
