A passion for hospitality and service, combined with talent, drive, a few Hotelie virtues, and an education from the Cornell Peter and Stephanie Nolan School of Hotel Administration, can lead virtually anywhere. In every corner of the hospitality sector—from brands to ownership, real estate to restaurants, the experiential to the digital—a Hotelie is innovating, improving, and influencing the industry.

Here, six alumni, who have followed different paths and landed in various industry verticals, share how they are bringing their changemaker spirit and Hotelie ethos to the world of hospitality.
