As Airbnb becomes an OTA like Expedia and Booking.com, it is no longer just for individuals renting out their space or their properties on their own. Next-generation hospitality companies such as Domio are truly becoming born on Airbnb hotels.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) August 23, 2018
Domio, a tech-enabled hospitality company that is professionalizing the travel rental market, announced today that Richard Lieb, Chairman of Real Estate at Greenhill & Co., LLC and Scott Shatford, CEO of AirDNA have joined the company’s Board of Advisors.
Lieb brings more than thirty years of experience in real estate investment banking. He joined Greenhill in 2005 and was named Chairman of Real Estate in 2016. Prior to Greenhill, he led Goldman Sachs’ Real Estate Investment Banking Group. Richard is also an independent director of several publicly traded REITs.
“The line between the residential real estate and hospitality markets continues to blur by the day, and the alternative accommodations market that has been created at their intersection is growing quicker than nearly any traditional real estate market,” said Lieb. “Domio has taken an early lead in professionalizing this burgeoning industry, and I’m excited to join their advisory board as they continue to build innovative solutions for tomorrow’s traveler.”
Shatford has been a leader in the short-term rental and sharing space since its inception. Spotting the huge potential of Airbnb back in 2014, he utilized his 15 years of experience as a data analyst to set up AirDNA, the world's leading provider of Airbnb data and analytics. With his domain expertise and background in data analytics, Shatford regularly informs the market on the latest trends in the sharing economy and is the author of “The Airbnb Expert’s Playbook”.
“As Airbnb becomes an OTA like Expedia and Booking.com, it is no longer just for individuals renting out their space or their properties on their own,” noted Shatford. “Next-generation hospitality companies such as Domio are truly becoming born on Airbnb hotels, leveraging data-driven strategies to identify, acquire and quickly list an ever-expanding portfolio of properties that are well received by travelers. I’m thrilled to be joining the Domio board as they accelerate their growth within this space.”
"We're happy to welcome Richard and Scott to the Domio Advisory Board," said Jay Roberts, CEO and co-founder of Domio. "With the private accommodation market poised to hit $170B in 2018, their market experience, combined with the Domio technology platform, will have the company well positioned to be a market leader as the private urban and vacation rental industry is professionalized.”
