Synergy is excited to welcome Anthony Gonzalez back to the organization as a Senior Director of Global Business Development. Gonzalez will report to EVP of Sales and Marketing, Craig Partin, and work from the company’s corporate headquarters in San Ramon, CA. He will be responsible for new business acquisition, client service and retention, and expanding Synergy’s reach in new growth markets worldwide.
“I’m thrilled to come back “home” to Synergy after advancing my talent stack by working for two venture-backed mobility start-ups,” said Gonzalez. “I’ve stayed very close to Synergy over the last couple years, partnering and following along as they gained further market share and made significant investments in technology. So, when the opportunity presented itself, I couldn’t resist the chance to team back up, as I believe, and have always believed; it will be Synergy that defines the next generation of hospitality.”
Gonzalez entered the mobility and business travel space, and to a larger degree, the corporate housing industry in 2013 with Synergy. He spent six years with the industry leader before leaving to join the fintech-powered marketplace, Shyft, as its EVP of Sales and Marketing. Following Shyft, in late 2020, he joined Relocity, a talent mobility platform focused on the destination services provider (DSP) space, as its Head of Sales.
“Anthony is an incredibly knowledgeable, determined and talented sales leader with a unique and innovative approach to driving value to his clients,” said Partin. “From the moment he left, we’ve always wanted to bring him back and feel his evolved and diversified mobility experience will bring incredible value to Synergy’s global client base.”
Gonzalez is an active member of Bay Area Mobility Management (BAMM), the Worldwide Employee Relocation Council (WERC), and the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA). He is also a member of Pavilion, formerly Revenue Collective, a global community for high-growth leaders, and he volunteers for Back on My Feet, a social services non-profit that combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources.
In his free time, Gonzalez is helping his daughter Zoë fall in love with traveling the world, much like her mom and dad. At age two, she’s already visited Seattle, Austin, Puerta Vallarta, Playa Del Carmen and if we count the trips while in mama’s belly, you can add London, Dublin, Mexico City and Maui. He also has a five-pound Yorkie and stays fit running, weightlifting and boxing.
