AltoVita, a company looking to transform the corporate accommodation sector with enterprise software, has appointed Ivan Peralta as chief technology officer.

The London firm, whose customers include Hewlett Packard Enterprises, Google and US government agencies, develops global accommodation technology to help employees of Fortune 2000 companies book and manage smart, safe and sustainable flexible living.

Founded in 2018 by Vivi Cahyadi Himmel and 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. 

Peralta, a long-term advisor to the corporate travel industry with over 22 years of experience, is a former VP of engineering at TravelPerk, where he led a team of 150+ engineers in driving product innovation.

AltoVita, which is building the most extensive inventory in the corporate accommodation sector, already has a network of over one million properties and spans 165 countries across five continents.

“Our mission is to provide smart, safe, and sustainable corporate accommodation across the globe, and I’m excited to be part of the journey.”

CEO Himmel added: “We’re thrilled to be entering the next phase of our transformational growth phase in technology. 

“Working with travel scaleups is in Ivan’s DNA, and his leadership will go a long way in helping us accelerate our ambition to make corporate accommodation the best it can be for enterprises and employees globally.”
