In the transformational and highly competitive industries of Hospitality, Travel and Leisure it is critical to have leaders in place who can meet the challenges of growing consumer expectations, disruptive technologies, unstable geo-political environments and globalization.

Customers have more options than ever before as to how they will search for and book their travel, where they will go, and how they will interact with the service provider.

Hospitality, Travel and Leisure brands have had to rapidly change their organizational and commercial models to meet the demands of increasing sophisticated international travelers who place a premium on the level of personalized customer experience they receive.

Successful industry leaders must have vision, creativity, advanced analytical and relationship skills, and be ready to face challenges to the status quo. Due to a shortage of talent within the industry who have mastered the transformation into the new era and with the finger on the pulse, companies are increasingly seeking to attract external professionals with functional experience from technology organizations and other consumer brands.
