what some have said about the founder, neal
"Neal helped my team at MGM to establish and document best practices for pricing certain key segments in the Las Vegas market. He is extremely knowledgeable about Revenue Management as it is practiced today in hospitality, and is very good at the application of best practices across different "flavors" of the problem, considering the goals and capabilities of the organization. Neal is detail oriented, and very responsive. He is also extremely personable, and very good at explaining complex topics and leading/moderating group discussions such that all opinions are heard and accounted for. I would absolutely recommend him for any RM project, but most especially those focused on establishing best practices and elevating the discipline of RM in your hospitality organization!"
"I had the pleasure of working with Neal for a contracted Revenue Management project for Colwen Hotels. I was very impressed how Neal jumped into the project by learning all about our current processes and the strengths and weaknesses of our overall Revenue department. He provided case studies and offered technology solutions to assist our team with efficiency and time. I am certain we will be hiring Neal again in the future to measure how far we have come with some of his best practice suggestions."
"He is a true ambassador for our discipline and combines both the knowledge and passion for RM to continuously push the envelope in terms of delivering results and strengthening RM culture."
"His management style creates a fun environment where his colleagues can excel and learn. I have seen first hand why Neal is considered one of the top minds in Revenue Management today and absolutely agree that he should be there."
"Neal is the consummate professional. His attention to detail is legendary. More often than not, he’s the smartest guy in the room. Neal has the capacity to lead, and will likely, one day, lead the revenue management or other function of his choosing, in the most complex, global environment possible. He is a rare find, and his value cannot be stressed too strongly."
"I’ve been lucky to know and work with Neal since 2011 as he’s contributed his knowledge, insights, and leadership to HSMAI and its Revenue Management Advisory Board. He is a thought-leader who generously and enthusiastically contributes his expertise for the good of the whole. Not only is Neal really smart, he’s a great communicator – able to translate challenging subject matter into understandable insights and action plans. Of the many, many board members I’ve worked with, Neal stands out for his incredible knowledge of the hotel industry and revenue management within it, for his curious and innovative nature, and his creative ingenuity….not to mention his wicked sense of humor. I can’t wait for my next opportunity to work with Neal."
"I was impressed with his skill set in managing a virtually unmanageable situation. This hotel could easily pick up 1,000+ rooms in a day and Neal was able to react to these changes immediately. I wasn't surprised when Neal shared with me that he was leaving to join Fairmont in a regional capacity knowing that he was one of the brightest minds in RM that I'd ever met."
"Neal Fegan is someone I deeply admire and respect as a Revenue Management professional. I worked with Neal for over 10 years and he took our company from manual Excel spreadsheets and a handful of Revenue Managers to one of the most sophisticated and best in class Revenue Management disciplines in a hotel company globally. Neal adds vision and a dynamic strategic mind to his very thoughtful and methodical approach to driving business. Working with Neal always uncovers opportunity and a fresh approach to incremental revenue."
