The sustainability transition in the hotel sector is not getting off the ground fast enough. There are no government regulations as opposed to those that are applicable to office buildings, whilst the hotel industry use a considerable amount of energy too. In addition, hotel owners and operators often work independently from each other when it comes to sustainability. Finally, it is not yet likely that consumers are consciously opting for sustainable hotels.

After a successful internship in 2017, I officially joined Colliers in 2018 as Junior Consultant Hotels. My role as Junior Consultant was to support the Senior Consultants with transaction and consultancy assignments. For example, I have been involved in dispositions and acquisitions of hotels, leasing assignments, valuations, feasibility studies and contract negotiations. Besides, I was part of the Colliers Research team until the end of 2020, where I was responsible for collecting and analyzing market data and writing market stories and publications.

Since the beginning of 2020, I have the position of Consultant Hotels, where I primarily focus on the consultancy assignments within the hotel team. This includes guiding rental assignments, conducting feasibility studies and valuations and advising during contract negotiations. Clients are hotel developers, owners and hotel operators.
