With the hospitality industry abuzz about the launch and recent installations of the new Roomlinx, Inc. (OTC: RMLX – News) In-Room Media, Entertainment & Business solution, the company prepares for immediate growth by announcing several staff promotions and new hires.

Roomlinx provides guests with instant access to hotel services, video on demand, international and U.S. television programming, music, shopping, business productivity tools, concierge assistance, PC/Web-based games, and more via the in-room television.
“This is truly an exciting time to be a Roomlinx customer as industry experts deem it ‘the technology of the future,’” said Roomlinx CEO Mike Wasik. “It’s equally as exciting to be a Roomlinx employee because our staff is instrumental in watching a product bloom not only from concept to completion, but from new kid on the block to hottest technology on the market.

“Having a sexy product to sell that offers the most advanced and innovative information and communication services available is very exciting, but, having the skill-set and dedication among a team of professionals that is highly experienced in and truly understands the hospitality and broadcast industries, is utterly amazing. I am very pleased to announce the following promotions and new additions to our valued staff.”

Matt Harris, former director of operations, was promoted to Roomlinx Vice President of Operations.  Harris came to the company with more than 15 years of management and operations experience in the television and cable broadcast industry.
