Gabriella was born and raised in Germany. She very quickly discovered her passion for hospitality after studying at Le Sorbonne in Paris and gaining her initial training at privately owned five star Colombi Hotel in Freiburg. Thereafter she joined the boutique luxury Hampshire Hotel in London and worked with Le Meridien on Piccadilly.
After attending the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University, Gabriella moved to Hotel Bel-Air™ where she was eventually appointed Reservations Manager. She transferred to privately owned Red Rock Resorts in Arizona and Washington to become the driving force to oversee the successful reorganisation of the company’s entire reservations and leisure as well as corporate sales structure.
When leaving Red Rock Resorts, Gabriella Tritschler joined London based Supranational Hotels where she grew into a highly respected senior member of their corporate and consortia sales team. Amongst other smaller projects, her latest project lies with Fastbooking, the global industry leader to optimise digital distribution of more than 8.000 hotels worldwide. She is a member of the Cornell Hotel Society.
The main focus of Gabriella’s consultancy is the Corporate Hotel Support – i.e. the optimization of cross-regional sales activities of hotels with a focus on the business travel segment. Drawing on more than twenty years of experience in intensive sales support and cooperation with business travel agencies, TMC’s, consortia and large global companies in virtually every country, Gabriella has established herself as an esteemed leader in her field of expertise in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
