Seattle travel startup Yapta found a permanent chief executive, a Washington State University grad who orchestarted the sale of his last company.
James Filsinger was chief executive of EZYield.com until it was sold in November to TravelClick, where he’s been managing the Florida company’s channel management business.
Earlier Filsinger was a vice president at travel giant Sabre Holdings.
“James is a proven leader with a wealth of experience in the travel technology space and an intimate understanding of travel booking solutions, making him uniquely qualified to lead the organization,” Voyager Capital’s BIll McAleer, a Yapta director and investor, said in a release.
Yapta has15 employees plus contract workers.
