AltoVita, the corporate accommodation platform specialising in large enterprises, has announced the appointment of several experienced female leaders to its team.

Founded in 2018 by CEO Vivi Cahyadi Himmel and COO Karolina Saviova, who have lived in over 20 cities between them, the company was born out of the lack of available options for corporate travellers and a desire to standardise and provide quality assurance to the legacy corporate accommodation sector.

They have already built a network of over one million properties worldwide and aims to deliver 2.5 million properties to businesses and employees across 20k locations globally by the end of 2023.

With this goal in mind, the company has appointed new members to its leadership team, including chief of staff, director, Sofia Bombieri, who brings with her over 10 years of business management, development, and hospitality experience.

Taking on the role of director of client partnerships, US, is Christina Blondheim. With more than a decade of experience in the corporate accommodation sector and four years in business development, Blondheim will lead AltoVita’s US expansion.

Her counterpart in India will be Shradha Mithal, director of client relations, an experienced professional in this industry with key experience as the founder of Resettle Destination Services.

Ambra Ceratto, director of customer success, joins with over eight years of experience in the travel and hospitality sector.

Meanwhile, Lara Juan-Camps Castell will lead AltoVita’s HR department as global people officer, bringing with her valuable experience at companies such as TravelPerk and Onna.

These new appointments will help drive AltoVita’s mission to build the largest and most connected ecosystem in corporate accommodations with smart, safe and sustainable living for employees anywhere in the world.

With a strong track record in private equity, investor relations and equity raising, Kinjal Amin joins the AltoVita team as finance director to head up the team’s finance function and strategy. She has experience working with some of the world’s leading financial institutions including Deutsche Bank, EY, and Accenture.

To expand the company’s global presence, Urska Blagojevic has been appointed as marketing director. She brings a wealth of experience in global SaaS, combined with her extensive knowledge in demand generation, product go-to-market strategy and developing account-based marketing programmes for enterprise sales.

To support AltoVita’s APAC expansion, Peggy Ng has joined the team as client development manager. She brings with her 19 years’ experience in business development and client services, as well as 10.5 years exposure to the mobility industry.

As a female-founded and led company, AltoVita is committed to diversity and inclusion, with more than 60 per cent of its workforce being female and made up of individuals from 13 different nationalities.

AltoVita is going a long way in providing an innovative solution which also has an element of human touch.”

Vivi Cahyadi Himmel, CEO, and co-founder at AltoVita added: “As a female-founded company, we are thrilled to welcome these formidable women to help support our mission to transform the corporate accommodation industry through innovation.
