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. We look forward to what 2019 will bring and are truly honored to receive the 2018 EPIC Chairman Award."
In order to be nominated for this honor, the partner must exude 'EPIC' qualities of engagement, partnership, innovation and collaboration. Expedia has found that partners who demonstrate all of these qualities produce high volumes of revenue, treat their customers with respect and of equal value to those who book with them directly and push Expedia to explore different and innovative ways of partnering together. This award further establishes Highgate as a leader in the industry and is a perfect benchmark for the great things to come from the brand in 2019.
