Sébastien Grosjean is the Founder and CEO of vacation rental management software, BookingSync.com.
Séb’s curiosity for vacation rentals began at a very young age. Growing up, his parents managed chalets in Névache, a village town nestled in the French Alps. They then expanded their portfolio by first managing stone houses in Lorgues, Provence and subsequently by developing a number of luxury properties – VillasThalassa – on the beautiful island of Lefkada, Greece.
While Séb went to university in Paris to study computer science, he remained close to the family VR business and soon would take over management responsibilities in Lefkada. Under Séb’s leadership, VillasThalassa properties booked 30% more than comparable short term rentals on the island. More and more bookings and inquiries in turn generated a problem of scale: how to make the VR management process more efficient?
Séb sat down to solve this problem and started coding what would become BookingSync. Now with over 25 years of experience in the vacation rental industry and over 15 years in software development, Séb has built BookingSync into a company with over $1MM in funding and into a software active in 115 countries.
