Nicolas Boutin

Partner & Managing Director


For most travel players today, the competitive battlefield is shifting from supply focus to demand centricity. Structural advantages are fading and operational excellence is no longer a sufficient advantage. Winning the hearts and minds of consumers is now the most critical element for any travel business.
