Dallas — Ziosk®, an industry-leading technology platform that helps restaurants increase operational efficiency and optimize the guest experience, is ushering in a new era of innovation with the appointment of three new executive leadership team members: Eric Neilson, chief technology officer; Steve Beckham, chief marketing and brand officer; and Sandro Natale, chief innovation officer.
“As we continue our journey toward elevating the dining experience, our goal at Ziosk is to better understand our clients’ guests and ensure that we’re providing the tools necessary to help meet their needs on their terms,” says Rhonda Levene, president, Ziosk. “Each executive brings a different perspective to our business and understanding of the guest based on their unique backgrounds which will be key in ultimately mapping out the future of the company and expanding our model to respond to the needs of the industry with more agility.”
Each executive has more than 25 years of individual experience to contribute to the role. Neilson, who most recently served as a director for SiriusXM, brings with him experience in product development and management. Beckham’s experience has been focused on entrepreneurial environments, as well as iconic food, beverage and family dining companies, supplying him with extensive knowledge of early-stage growth and the hospitality industry. Natale, previously a long-time director at AT&T, is well-versed in technology, revenue growth and product lifecycle development.
The combination of their experiences in technology, innovation, guest experience, restaurants, hospitality and retail creates a new, fresh dimension on the Ziosk leadership team.
