Cruise ship software provider, DeCurtis Corp has promoted Babak Aghevli to CTO with immediate effect.
In his increased role, Aghevli will be responsible for expanding and enhancing both the use of DeCurtis’ own technology portfolio, as well as developing offerings into adjacent markets.
Since joining DeCurtis earlier this year, he has leveraged the company’s services and products.
Specifically, the focus has been expanding the brand in new industries, such as non-cruise-centric hospitality, oil and gas, as well as smart buildings.
In his new role, he will continue to help lead the team as they enhance the patented DeCurtis Experience Platform (DXP) and complimentary solutions for larger markets.
“Babak has made a tremendous impact since joining DeCurtis,” said Derek Fournier, DeCurtis Corp President and CEO.
“He has provided a fresh perspective regarding our company goals and how to reach them and holds us accountable internally as well as with our clients. We look forward to what he achieves in his new role.”
Aghevi is an experienced Information Technology executive with a background of blending technology, process improvement, and business management in various industries.
Before joining DeCurtis, he operated his own consulting company, which provided services to cruise lines and the health care industry.
“It is exciting working with such an innovative platform adaptable to serve the needs of multiple industries. The dedicated employees of DeCurtis and I look forward to continuing this journey,” said Aghevli.
