Hello and Welcome to my Website!


About me

I published this website to share some information about me but above all about my professional life for anyone that may be interested in it. Please feel free to contact me for any question, discussion, idea, advice or just to say "hello".

 

Originally from Heidelberg I live in between 4 countries at Lake Constance and Lake Zurich. I am happy about living in the middle of Europe, near the Alps, surrounded by great nature but also enjoy the big cities. London is my favourite one.

 

Although I still love to explore known and unknown places, visit friends abroad and I still believe, that travelling opens one's mind and has a positive impact on our global community, it is a fact that tourism industry has a negative impact on our environment. This is bothering me a lot as well as ideas of a more sustainable life in general.

 

After my studies in Tourism Management at the Cooporative University of Ravensburg and a career with steps at a tour operator, a destination management company and an incoming operator, I decided to become self-employed in 2004. Since 2010, I have shared my work in both fields, Tourism Consulting and Tour-Operation, together with long-time partners and friends Alexander Fritsch and Heidi Österle in two separate companies.


My professional focuses are

  • Hotel Industry / Accommodation: Online Ratings and Reviews, Online Reputation Management, Feedback Management, Distribution, Sales Channels, Pricing- & Sales-Strategies, Cooperation and Contracting with Tour Operators, Travel Agencies, Online- and Directsales-Agencies
  • Destination Management & Events: Organisation of Destination Management Companies and Destination Management Services for Incentives and Events
  • Tour-Operator and Travel Advisor: Product Development and Buying of all services for Business and Leisure Travel and Events, Organising trips world wide

With more than 20 years of practical experience in tourism and hospitality, my primary goal for projects, trainings and workshops is always to deliver useful and workable tipps and solutions with a still profound background knowledge.


Reference clients

Tourism and Hotel Industry both are dominated by many very small businesses on the one hand side and a concentration of few really large market leaders on the other. That is why I am used to work for both types of businesses: owner or family run SMEs as well as for large Groups and Corporations. 

 

Some of my renowned clients are TUI, Booking.com, Accor Hotels, Motel One, Deutsche Hospitality, InterContinental Hotels Group and Destinations like Sylt, Lech-Zürs, Zermatt, Småland, Skåne or Tourism organisations like Vorarlberg State Tourist Office and Visit Sweden.
