tripBAM, Inc.
Dallas, Texas
President and Founder of tripBAM, a new hotel shopping service. tripBAM allows individuals, companies, and agencies to shop across multiple hotels over several days to take advantage of prices changes. Based upon historical results, the system finds savings over 80% of the time and the average savings is $50 per night. Based upon tripBAM's success, I was recently named one of the top 25 most influential executives within corporate travel.

As President of The R Group, I am a travel industry consultant with over 25 years of experience. My areas of expertise include helping corporations, traditional agencies, online agencies, and travel suppliers develop and improve the usage of technology, manage suppliers more effectively, identify opportunities of cost savings, and enhance top line growth. 

I was a founding member of two technology related companies within travel. The first, CTI, in Houston, Texas provided travel systems and services to fortune 1000 companies. The company was later purchased by American Express. The second company was Travel Technologies Group (TTG) based in Dallas, TX. The company grew to $25M in annual revenues before merging with two other companies to form TRX. TRX employed 1,600 in 14 countries and processed over 80% of the corporate travel transactions in the U.S.

After TRX, I became the Regional Vice President for ACS managing the Travel and Transportation division. This region included over $250M in revenue and over 2,300 employees servicing 13 major airlines and four of the largest travel distributors across both domestic and offshore locations. After ACS, I became Managing Director for North America for WNS Global Services and responsible for the company's revenues and profits in the U.S. WNS specializes in providing a broad set of offshore BPO services such as F&A, contact center, research and analytics to travel, retail, banking, insurance, logistics, and healthcare related companies.
