New Chief Product Officer, CFO to Join Sabre

Saber Corp. Next month will get new chief product and chief financial officers, as the executives currently in those positions will leave the company.

Garry Wiseman, who called Saber “in designing and implementing high-scale digital experiences at some of the world’s largest technology companies,” will join Saber on Aug. 1 as chief product officer, the company announced. Wiseman most recently was SVP and chief digital officer at health and fitness company Nautilus, and he previously was SVP of digital customer experience at Dell Technologies.

Current Saber chief product officer Wade Jones, who has decided to leave the company, will stay on upon Wiseman’s arrival to help with the transition before officially leaving at the end of September. Jones has been a part of Saber’s executive leadership team for seven years and “was instrumental in building our product organization and designing an industry-leading product portfolio that will help enable Saber to deliver on its promise for personalized travel,” Saber president Kurt Ekert said in a statement.

Saber CFO Doug Barnett will retire Aug. 22, and Saber has hired BFA Industries CFO Mike Randolfi to fill his position. Randolfi also has served as CFO for workforce solutions provider Adtalem Global Education and Groupon but also has travel industry experience. He was a CFO at Orbitz Worldwide and played a “significant role” in the company’s sale to Expedia, and he spent 14 years in executive financial roles at Delta Air Lines, including leading analysis and integration of its merger with Northwest Airlines, according to Saber.

Barnett will stay with Saber through Oct. 30 to help with the transition, according to Saber.
