Testimony of Stéphane Castellani, Multi-site Revenue Manager for Adagio
"My main mission is the optimisation of revenue for the aparthotels of my zone (Paris, Brussels, Munich and Berlin); selling the apartments at the right time, at the right price, for the right duration and to the right customer… that’s the essence of my profession. Interaction with the other head-quarters departments (pricing, reservations, sales, cost analysis, operations...) is another important part of my job. Operational revenue management is an essential part of the global management of any hotel. The General Manager and Assistant Manager are my key contacts on the site; we advise them and develop the tools and systems to optimise the revenue of their aparthotel. We visit them regularly to review their performance and to discuss the best strategy to implement.
After high studies in tourism and in hotel management, I spent several work experience periods in hotels which led to a permanent position of assistant manager in a two star hotel after my graduation. After three years as assistant manager, I chose to specialise in revenue management. I get great satisfaction from my job due to its diversity and its complexity.
As well as the technical skills required on Excel, a revenue manager must be handy with figures and have a very analytical mind. Good people skills will help with communicating their conclusions and suggesting solutions. I also think that operational experience is important so as to be familiar with the reality of day to day life in the hotel and all the elements involved in deciding a rate."
