Highgate Receives Expedia Group's 2018 EPIC Chairman Award
Earlier this month, real estate investment and hospitality management company Highgate received the prestigious 2018 EPIC Chairman Award, Expedia Group's highest global partner award. Highgate's Chief Revenue Officer Ankur Randev proudly accepted the award on behalf of Highgate from Expedia Group's Barry Diller, chairman and senior executive, Mark Okerstrom, president and chief executive officer and Melissa Maher, senior vice president, marketing and innovation.
"Highgate's three decades of industry experience have all led to our position as a leader and pioneer in the hospitality space and what we are most proud of is our reputation as trusted partner," said Highgate Chief Revenue Officer Ankur Randev. "We are constantly striving to innovate and it is with partners such as Expedia Group that we are truly able to make a mark in the industry.
