Some of the world’s largest hotel groups — including Marriott, IHG and Hilton — use this London company’s technology to price rooms, forecast demand and review competition. OTA Insight was founded in 2012 by university friends Gino Engels, Matthias Geeroms and Adriaan Coppens, all 33, who noticed that London hotels had been unable to predict occupation rates during the Olympics. In 2017, the company secured a $20m investment from Eight Road Ventures and F-Prime Capital, helping it to expand overseas. Chief executive Sean Fitzpatrick, 46, oversaw sales — which consist of subscription fees for its platform — of £10.3m in 2018.
