Which timeshare exchange and vacation services company is in the news most often? These days, it seems to be Dial An Exchange, the DAE Group. This week the company announced the appointment of James Mulvaney as the new Chief Information Officer for DAE.
DAE Group CEO, Francis Taylor, speaks to Mulvaney’s appointment, saying, “We are fortunate to have a knowledgeable, passionate professional with 25 years in the IT industry join our team as we move into new markets and expand our capabilities. We are delighted to welcome James Mulvaney as the Chief Information Officer for the DAE.”
Describing James Mulvaney’s new role as both strategic and operational, Taylor adds that Mulvaney will focus on “practical innovation to position DAE as a global leader in information systems.”
James Mulvaney has extensive experience in strategic communications that reaches across several industries, including vacation ownership and timeshare. Mulvaney says, “I am very excited to become a permanent fixture in the timeshare industry and to work with one of the leading organizations in the market. My role will be to develop a professional, efficient, and communicative department, centered around Information Services (IS), rather than physical technology.
Elaborating, Mulvaney explains, “Primarily my team will deliver business aligned information services and contemporary solutions to benefit DAE internally, as well as improving the user experience for industry partners and members.
“This will involve assessing and removing constraints associated with traditional technology, while simultaneously establishing new systems that enable DAE’s business growth.
“Cloud Computing, particularly Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) will become the key component of Information Services Delivery, and ultimately play a core role in DAE’s global expansion strategies.
“My goal is to develop DAE’s IS department as a “Centre of Excellence” that leads by example to DAE and the wider industry, and, most importantly, helps it continue as a fun and attractive organization to work with.”
Dynamic growth and advancement has been the best way to describe all that is happening at DAE recently. And with the new appointment of James Mulvaney, it looks as if the exciting developments and changes are only going to continue.
