THE 50 PEOPLE CHANGING THE WAY WE TRAVELopens in new window
Booking.com is one of the few survivors of the early dot-com bubble. Founded in the Netherlands in 1996, with headquarters in Amsterdam, it now employs more than 15,000 people in 198 offices in 70 countries worldwide and handles 1.5 million room bookings every day from its 28.7-plus million listings – making it the world’s biggest online accommodation-booking site. At the head of the sprawling business is CEO Gillian Tans, who has held various roles at the firm since joining as one of its first hires in 2002. Based in Amsterdam, Tans cycles to work and doesn’t have an office – none of the senior executives do – often holding meetings sitting on the floor with colleagues. One of the keys to the company’s success is how it turns lookers into bookers with clever marketing, constant testing and improvement of the user experience.
