TORONTO, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Zonetail Inc. (TSXV: ZONE) (“Zonetail” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Reetu Gupta, the CEO and President of The Gupta Group and Easton’s Group of Hotels has accepted a position on Zonetail’s Board of Directors.
Reetu Gupta has worked in the real estate and hospitality industries for over twenty years. Since achieving her MBA in 2008, Reetu quickly added hotels to the Easton’s Group of Hotels portfolio while also diversifying the company’s assets into residential and commercial real estate in 2012, launching The Gupta Group.
Reetu has been awarded Canada’s Top 40 Under 40® in 2017, and the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce Female Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2018, among others.
In 2017, Reetu and her brother Suraj co-founded Rogue Insight Capital (“Rogue”); The Gupta Group’s angel investment and venture capital arm. Suraj, CIO for The Gupta Group and President & CEO of Rogue, is leading the company’s diversification strategies, and Rogue participated in Zonetail’s most recent round of funding.
Mark Holmes, President and CEO stated, “Strategic investment is always an asset and we were very excited to have Rogue Insight Capital invest in our recent round of financing and we are thrilled to have Reetu join Zonetail’s board. Her experience in both the hotel and condo industries provides a wealth of leadership to Zonetail’s Board of Directors and our continued growth and success.”
The Zonetail hotel and condo platforms connect hotel guests and condo residents to the amenities and services of their building through the convenience of their personal mobile device. Included on the platforms are ‘Explore’ sections where paid advertising appears to highlight the businesses and services surrounding each building that the residents and guests are in need of.
Reetu Gupta said, “We have worked with Mark for many years, and when he met with Suraj and myself to share his latest venture, Zonetail, we knew it was something we needed to be involved with. We tailor our investment portfolio towards companies that have a direct relationship with our core businesses, and with Zonetail working in both the hotel and condo space, we couldn’t have asked for a better fit.”
The Easton’s Group of Hotels has begun adopting the Zonetail hotel platform, and future plans include the adoption of the Zonetail condo platform with the residential/condo arm of The Gupta Group.
