Me in a minute

Our industry is long-established but growing fast

I have the privilege of loving my job. The hotels sector is regionally and globally connected and never stays still. Tourism is an economic powerhouse: the industry is a great employer, trainer and launch-pad for so many. And Asia Pacific is perhaps the most exciting marketplace - here our industry is long-established but growing fast - with some amazing product and experiences. I find working with our clients to identify opportunity, and execute on strategy immensely rewarding at a personal level.
