Chief Evangelist, IDeaS
As IDeaS Chief Evangelist, Klaus Kohlmayr challenges strategic processes, stimulates thought-provoking conversations and reinvigorates the future of revenue management and pricing within the hospitality and travel industries. A natural contrarian, Klaus has challenged the status quo in the hotel industry for over 20 years. With IDeaS, he previously started the company’s global consulting division and pioneered the industry’s first group price optimization and function space revenue management proof-of-concepts in a real-world environment. An advocate of lifelong learning, he has studied business at Henley Management College in the UK, real estate investment and asset management at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration; and finance and strategy at the Singapore Management University. Klaus has been an active participant in various industry advisory boards. He not only loves to challenge the status quo, but wholly welcomes being challenged in new ways of thinking.
