Gilda Perez-Alvarado

Global CEO

JLL Hotels & Hospitality

For the second episode of 2022 we were lucky to catch Gilda Perez-Alvarado for a chat. She talked to us about her time at Cornell University, her love for travel and cultures and how she found her passion for real estate finance in combination with hospitality. Leading a team of 350 professionals all over the world at JLL Hotels & Hospitality, Gilda explained how important it is to invest in people and to set them up for success and how the industry is shifting towards more diversity as well as more women in leadership positions. Lastly, we learned about Gilda’s mentors, how giving birth to a child during the pandemic has shifted her focus onto the next generation and how we will see a great amount of change through technology as the next major revolution.

Enjoy the show!
