Uniguest promotes Matt Goche to CEO

Uniguest has promoted Matt Goche to CEO from his role as COO, taking over responsibility from Jeff Hiscox following a six-year tenure.

Hiscox will move into the chairman role on Uniguest’s board of directors and act as a strategic advisor to the Uniguest executive team, while Goche steps up to take responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the company and drive revenue growth.

“This is the right time to make this change both for me personally and the company,” said Hiscox. “I feel the executive leadership team is well-positioned to take the company forward. With setting up our operations to support our organic growth, supporting the commercial teams to drive top-line revenue and with bringing on new companies through his tireless efforts on acquisitions and integration, Matt has been instrumental in growing Uniguest, and I’ve no doubt he will continue to be successful in his new role.”

Goche added, “Under Jeff’s outstanding leadership and guidance, our global business is strong and well positioned. He hands over the reins at an exciting time for the business, and I am thrilled to be leading the team forward as we enter the next phase of growth at Uniguest. [This year] and beyond are going to be important years for our industry and for our business, and I am proud and motivated to lead an amazing group of people at Uniguest.”

Supporting Goche in his new role, Mike Rethage has been promoted to COO from his role as EVP of Uniguest’s Senior Living division. Heading up the R&D teams, Jeff Stonebrook was also promoted to chief technology officer from his previous role as EVP, software engineering.
