Dinova, Inc., a business dining marketplace, announced the appointment of Alison Galik as President. In this role, Galik will be responsible for leading the day-to-day operations as well as executing the company’s strategic plan and future growth.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Alison into the Dinova family,” says Vic Macchio, Founder, Executive Chairman, and Chief Strategy Officer at Dinova. “Alison embodies the best of our values, drive and focus as a company. She is ideally suited to lead Dinova into our next phase as we grow and enhance every aspect of operations and execution.”
Galik brings more than 20 years of global business leadership in corporate travel management and technology. Among her accomplishments, Galik was most recently President at Vibe HCM Inc., where she was responsible for the success of the human capital management software firm.
Prior to Vibe, Galik was Executive Vice President at Nashville-based InnLink, where she presided over a $10 million central reservation services business serving 3,500+ independent hotel customers. Her success there led to the acquisition of InnLink by Sabre Hospitality Solutions. Galik’s career runs deep in the corporate travel management space, having held executive positions at Rosenbluth International, American Express, StarCite and Lanyon Solutions. “I’m both honored and excited to be joining Dinova. Business dining is the third largest corporate T&E expense and Dinova’s winning marketplace model for both corporate clients and restaurants is a legacy I’m proud to be part of,” said Ms. Galik.
Michael Ramich, Partner of Frontier Capital, the growth equity firm that invested in Dinova one year ago, said that adding a seasoned executive in the travel technology space is key to Dinova’s strategy and future growth. “Alison has the combination of industry experience and a deep relationship with Frontier Capital, holding previous positions with Frontier investments Lanyon and Vibe HCM, to achieve the ambitious goals.”
Galik holds a bachelor’s degree in Management and Marketing from Rutgers University, and an MBA from Temple University. She will work from Dinova’s headquarters office in Johns Creek, Georgia.
