It’s fair to say that the origin of OUT Consulting Group is the career path of our co-founder Guilherme Pinto … for the purpose of this history at least, if we start with Big Bang we risk missing the point. We´ll share it in first person.
In 2019 I resigned from my role at Marriott in the UAE. Not a bad time to resign after winning best comercial team and best sales individual results for Middle East and Africa for Marriott (more than 1 hotel in the region. Pinkie Promise). I worked in some of the top hotel brands before this, from Walt Disney World Resorts to Starwood, Meliá, Hyatt and Viceroy.
For many great reasons, I came back home (Portugal) with my family and opened a consultancy company. Not the most “risk it all entrepreneurship” start as I had a nice consultancy project agreed with Manchester City beforehand. This project was the start, it was followed by other additional projects in tourism.
From our early contact with independent hotels in Portugal, we were able to understand that the 80% year on year growth we brought to our main hotel partner, was a reflection of lack of commercial resources and talent pool. Being great commercial minds, this was definitely a need for us to address. And so the idea of OUT CG started to unfold.
