Rohit Verma Is Named Executive Director of Cornell Center for Hospitality Research
"The Center for Hospitality Research has made tremendous strides in expanding its reach to share the most current research-based information with the hospitality industry," said Verma. "I appreciate the efforts of outgoing academic director David Sherwyn, and I hope that we will continue to expand the scope of the center's research programs and industry events." Verma added: "The center's industry partners and friends are committed to promoting relevant and high-quality research. Along with the dedicated center staff, I am looking forward to working closely with our 70+ industry collaborators."
In addition to the center's existing research report series, the Cornell Hospitality Quarterly, and industry roundtables, Verma would like to initiate web-based presentations and podcasts by center researchers. "I envision direct contact between our researchers and the industry, as well as other researchers and students," Verma explained. "Web 2.0 technologies and social media allows us to offer 'webinars' and other interactive events. The whole idea is to share as much research and information with the industry as possible."
