Strategy & Management
“My management style? I’m a hands-on strategist, I like to get my hands dirty, talk to people, get to know the operation and influence it, even when acting as a consultant to a CEO or management team. I’m a communicator, innovator and doer and not a big fan of old-school hierarchies.
I also believe in sustainable success. Which means that making sure we plan ahead for leaner days is always a priority. This doesn’t necessarily make me popular when times are good. But I have been thanked when they’re not”.

Case: TUI Travel Hotels & Resorts – Turkey
Assignment: Setting up and managing TUI’s own management of 14 hotels on the Turkish market in order to become the leading hotel operator in the region. Audience: hotel guests, management and staff. Delivery: new, strategic business structure and launch of a sustainable hotel operation with a long-term plan.
I had the pleasure of working with Goran for 16 years. He is a friend and colleague. For many years he was the Managing Director of Star Tour Hotels AS, Pascha Bay Resort, Antalya. He created at this hotel, one of the most successful and popular Blue Village Resorts. He was always looking for creative ways to improve and enhance the guest experience. His drive and energy meant that he was always able to exceed the expectations of his guests, even those many repeat visitors. Later, Goran was responsible for taking over the management of 2 large hotel businesses in Turkey (Joy Hotels (11 properties) and Magic Life (6 properties) altogether 22000 beds. He was successful in both cases and ensured smooth and successful operations. He was able to take problematic hotels and turn them into award winners. This required, firstly, a detailed understanding of revenues and costs and secondly, a great working relationship with the hotel staff. Goran is an expert hotelier, with great knowledge of food & beverage and entertainment.
