SAN FRANCISCO – February 1, 2024 – Envoy, the only integrated workplace platform that connects people, spaces, and data, has appointed Cormac Twomey as Chief Technology Officer to lead the company’s technology team in rethinking how workplaces work and helping Envoy's customers facilitate smarter decisions about their largest investment.
After a seasoned career at OpenTable Cormac is joining Envoy to manage its technology organization, overseeing product engineering, infrastructure and operations. His appointment comes as Envoy enters its next phase of growth, following a decade of redefining how thousands of workplaces run, and at a time when companies are increasingly shifting towards in-office work. Navigating these changing workplace dynamics, in an era where managing costs and efficiency is crucial to business success, requires new technology that can streamline data and automate operations.
"We could not have asked for a better match than Cormac," said Larry Gadea, CEO of Envoy, "our offerings have gotten substantially more complex and the thoughtful design and implementation of systems at scale has become more critical than ever before. It's an exciting time here and we're all very optimistic about the industry experience and mentality of excellence Cormac will bring to our culture."
“What drew me to Envoy is its fantastic platform loved by customers in thousands of workplaces around the world. It does a great job of solving a pain point faced by countless workplace leaders, office managers, employees and visitors – ensuring people, property and ideas are safe when entering a company location,” said Twomey. “At OpenTable we brought efficiencies and insights to restaurants which enabled them to create great experiences for their employees and guests. Envoy shares that mindset for workplaces.”
During his 10 years at OpenTable, Cormac transformed the company's engineering culture and practices, adopting modern software development and delivery practices that enabled faster and more frequent product releases. OpenTable's engineering team grew significantly, delivering innovative solutions for millions of diners and thousands of restaurants worldwide.
