What is your role at RoomPriceGenie and how long have you been with us?
My role is in Business Development, and I have been with RoomPriceGenie since September 1st, 2021.
What is your background in?
I have a focused on the traditional hospitality so far by working in operations in Four Seasons Prague and the Ritz London. With a more specialized Master’s in Hospitality Strategy and Digital Transformation I was able to make a swift in my career and start working for a SAAS company.
What do you think makes the RoomPriceGenie solution unique?
How easy it is to use. It doesn’t matter what your experience in revenue is, with RoomPriceGenie one can compete in the industry with the use of dynamic pricing.
What is something that hotel owners have to deal with that you want to fix?
Often hoteliers are overwhelmed with administrative tasks that have no time to focus on guest service. By automating the pricing process, we create for our guests the time they were missing.
What’s the coolest thing you are working on right now?
I am working on potential partnerships with educational institutions for future collaborations (e.g., internships) but also to offer access to our RoomPriceGenie Academy. This way we take an active role in the education of future hoteliers.
What is your favourite and least favourite thing about working in hospitality technology?
My favorite thing is that by nature working in hospitality technology one is forced to stay up to date with the industry trends and create disruption in the industry, which I find thrilling. My least favorite is that a lot of people still do not see the value from it and think of it as replacing jobs, whereas it creates additional time to focus on the important things.

If you could write a book about your life, what would the title be and why?
Because as a small kid I used to go around the neighborhood with a little backpack saying to my parents that I am going to find my future and my destiny…funnily enough I was the only child among my siblings that I went abroad to study and work.
