The reasonable man adopts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adopt the world to himself. Therefore all the progress depends on the unreasonable man (& woman).
- George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright (1856 - 1950)
My career has taught me about business, creativity and most of all humanity. After 28 years in the industry and 15 years as a GM, I’ve been blessed to be in charge of opening luxury hotels on top of mountains, tropical beaches and city epicenters. In 2018, I felt it was the time to launch my own company and share what I have learned.
Nowadays customer expectations are moving so rapidly that the conventional hospitality model is becoming antiquated - but yet the fundamental principles of selfless leadership is timeless and unequivocal.
There is small elite group of distinguished operators that cater to the 1%. They are known by the laurels of their pedigrees and international accomplishments. Armed with certain swagger and je ne sais quois - they are entrusted with turning disposable income into exceeded expectations. They are called Luxury Hoteliers.
I am one of them
Yet the new breed of leaders that run the world are completely fascinated in learning from others. They are intellectually curious and pathologically collaborative. They balance their failures with an insatiable hunger to constantly create. They see opportunities above obstacles in everything. They are humble. They are called Founders.
I am one of them as well.
Embracing this intersection between the service industry and entrepreneurship is where I drew success in my life, so I am creating my new business platform around the future of hospitality and understanding the value of human beings by valuing being human.
