MIAMI, Oct. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CellPoint Mobile (www.cellpointmobile.com), a leading provider of sales and payment-side technology solutions for the worldwide travel sector, has added three new members to its executive team to support the company's increasing expansion into the ground transportation and hospitality industries.
Building upon its successes implementing mobile booking and payment technologies with airlines, as well as its decade-plus experience with European rail operators, CellPoint Mobile is further expanding its offerings to rail, bus, passenger ferry, car rental, parking, hotel and hospitality operators across the globe. To do so, the company will leverage the talents of the three new vice presidents and their collective experience in travel technologies, product delivery, and customer satisfaction, including:
Jesper Tristan Harrishøj, Senior Vice President and Head of Sales/Global Ground Transportation
Harrishøj will shape and lead CellPoint Mobile's ground transportation efforts, bringing mobile commerce capabilities and payment solutions to national, regional and international transportation operators, initially in the UK, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. He brings to his role a background in sales management, new business development, and management consulting at companies that have included IBM, EG A/S, MT Højgaard, Right Management, and others.
Bharat Sharma, Vice President of Sales/Europe
Sharma will focus his sales, marketing and consulting expertise on the European travel market, where digital travel sales are predicted to reach $142 billion in Western Europe and nearly $10 billion in Central and Eastern Europe in 2017, according to eMarketer. An avid world traveler, Sharma most recently worked as Director of Regional Marketing for Sabre Airlines, and he also served as Regional Marketing Director for General Electric in London, and Marketing Operations Manager at Blue Coat Systems before joining CellPoint Mobile earlier this year.
Jan-Willem Luitjers, Senior Vice President/Head of Delivery
Luitjers will ensure timely, high-quality delivery of all CellPoint Mobile products and projects in the air, ground and hospitality industries to maximize company revenues and deliver outstanding customer satisfaction.

He also has professional management experience at KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Cap Gemini and as an independent consultant.
According to CEO Kristian Gjerding, the new hires in the London and Copenhagen offices will deliver the company's mobile booking and payment solutions to help travel operators drive mobile revenues by making it easy for passengers and guests to purchase travel products and services in the mobile channel.
"We are thrilled to have such talented industry professionals on our team as we position our products, expertise and services to a broader spectrum of travel operators," says Gjerding.
