12 October 2021 – One year into his appointment, Ordamo CEO, Rupert Gutteridge, is building a team to expand on the multi million pounds of revenue that the order and pay technology has seen generated through its online systems since July 2020. Gutteridge has big plans in play and is guiding the hospitality tech business on the road to international expansion over the next two years.
Rupert Gutteridge, formerly director of sales & marketing at Guestline, the hotel-operations software firm sits on a five-person board alongside chairman, Danny Potter, founder of the Inamo restaurant group. Since his appointment, Gutteridge has used his unrivalled expertise to ensure seamless operator and guest experiences, whilst removing pinch points. He has more than doubled the size of the sales team and appointed Hannah Bailey as director of business development to meet the increased demand and competition as a result of the pandemic.
The most recent appointment sees Stuart Nuttall join the leadership team as chief technology officer. Nuttall joins Ordamo with significant experience drawn from a long history of guiding companies towards optimal digital outlooks and with a passion point of helping SMEs. He was a vital cog in Toptable, which kickstarted the need for technology within the hospitality sector and was eventually bought by Opentable. He also led the integrated push for technology across all hospitality outlets for London’s Olympic Games.
Rupert Gutteridge has said of the appointment:
“I’m excited for Stuart to be joining us at such an important time for Ordamo. We have ambitious plans afoot and adding Stuart’s significant breadth and depth of expertise to our leadership team signals our drive for growth on all levels. His role within our strategy is to support the business’s growth plans; ensuring the feature rich products help solve customer problems and offer the longevity needed to guide us towards international expansion.”
