Robert (Rob) Gaynor is now senior vice president of enterprise technology. In his new position, he plays a critical role in providing leadership and management of the technology platforms that will allow the business to leverage application systems and resources across ILG.

Gene Pence has been promoted to senior vice president of application systems for ILG’s property management companies. He has overall responsibility for defining the application technology strategy and vision and directing the evaluation, acquisition, and implementation of application systems and services. He also remains head of ILG’s project integration office. Pence joined Interval in 1995 and most recently established a unit that has provided significant project management and business analyses to several of the ILG businesses, which improved operational efficiencies.
David Valdes is the new senior vice president of application systems for Interval International, an operating business of ILG. With this promotion, he is responsible for directing the system-development lifecycle, including project management, business analysis, application architecture, design, coding, and quality assurance for all in-house-developed and third-party applications. In the past 29 years, Valdes’ strategic vision has facilitated the transformation from an AS400-centric environment to world-class ecommerce and web-based systems and the introduction of a service-oriented architecture.
