Housekeeping represents the single largest line item among costs for hotels and it lies at the heart of every guest experience.

Signaling the company’s recognition as a leading innovator in the housekeeping management software sector, Hans Olbertz, an internationally renowned hotelier and global thought leader for the hospitality industry, has joined the OPTii Solutions board of directors.

During his distinguished career, Olbertz has served as a hotel general manager and senior executive for over three decades with Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Kempinksi Hotels. He rose steadily through the ranks of IHG in nearly a dozen countries, eventually taking the helm of Kempinski’s Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi, widely considered one of the world’s most palatial hotels. He has successfully managed major hotel operations throughout the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.

“Housekeeping represents the single largest line item among costs for hotels and it lies at the heart of every guest experience,” Olbertz said. “OPTii’s solution offers a true innovation for managing costs while optimizing the return on investment for hotel owners and enabling them to efficiently provide the highest quality of guest services. I am very excited to join this dynamic company’s board of directors.”

Olbertz currently serves as a board member with Steigenberger Hotels in Frankfurt, Germany, and as the Founding Governor of the International Association of Hotels General Managers, a Dubai-based provider of benefit programs such as health coverage, pension plans, and executive mentoring services through a large network of hotel industry leaders.

“For us, Hans’ decision to join the OPTii board represents a huge endorsement of the company’s potential to transform hotel housekeeping operations around the world,” said Sameer Shalaby, chairman of the board. “We are elated to welcome his unparalleled wealth of industry knowledge, proven creativity, and global professional network as priceless new resources to support OPTii’s rapid growth.”

In June, on the heels of a 40 percent surge in licensing revenue, OPTii raised $2.7 million in its first round of venture capital. The company recently relocated its corporate headquarters to Las Vegas, a global center for hospitality innovation and leadership, as it continues expanding its market reach across North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
