VRWS Leadership Interview of the Day
In approaching the 10th edition of the Vacation Rental World Summit, we’re releasing a series of interviews to leaders, key players and highly motivated people in our industry whose companies make a deep impact in our space and will be present at VRWS.
The aim is to get you some insight into these leaders and the company they founded, manage or work for, as well as getting some behind the scenes on their thinking, their motivation and their drive.
Describe your career in the vacation rental industry and how you reached your current position in the company.
I have been involved in vacation rentals since 2014 when I started a company that built dynamic packages of flights + short term rentals. In 2016, we pivoted and created Transparent, to help companies in our space to make decisions with market insights.
In your opinion, what are the main current challenges in the vacation rental industry, and how do you think your company can help overcome them?
One of the challenges facing the industry is understanding demand dynamics. We have come out of a period of very strong demand growth, led in many markets by renewed appetite and new supply coming into the market. In this ever changing environment, every player in our industry is trying to size trends that will impact their business. Will demand stay sufficiently strong to maintain ADR and compensate for supply growth? All those strategic questions can be answered with market insights.
What are your expectations for the 2023 edition of VRWS in Barcelona, and what makes you particularly interested in attending this specific edition?
I expect to put my finger on the industry’s pulse in terms of technology and general trends. I look forward to connecting with like minded people and reconnecting with industry friends.
Could you provide a brief preview of what attendees can expect from your participation during the Vacation Rental World Summit?
They can expect a lot of questions! I’d love to hear about their business, how they got to where they are today and how they are setting their goals for the years ahead. I love to learn from other vacation rental entrepreneurs and maybe find synergies between our businesses.
You’ll have the opportunity to meet Pierre directly at VRWS in Barcelona
