RoamingAround has recruited Pam Angelucci, distinguished hospitality veteran and former Ritz Carlton Hotel Co. CIO, 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.
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 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, that she became familiar with RoamBoost.
