Cohen, who will serve as Managing Partner, and David Millili who will serve as Chairman of the Board, GAIN bridges an essential gap for technology vendors, hospitality groups and investment funds in experiential capacity at the mid to senior management level, addressing the talent attrition challenge the global travel, hospitality, F&B industry faces.

We developed the concept and framework for GAIN based on the growing gap David, myself and many other experienced leaders witnessed in the travel, hospitality and restaurant tech industry over the past few years. The initial feedback we’ve received has been overwhelming and even before our official launch today, we successfully placed GAIN Advisors in C-suite interim roles and have started work on numerous advisory projects, demonstrating strong demand for our offering.Co-Founder and Managing Partner of GAIN, Michael C. Cohen
The GAIN client base at launch includes international government agencies such as, Enterprise Ireland and global travel and hospitality technology firms such Messerschmitt Systems among others.
We believe this is an ideal time and opportunity to optimize the global advisory and consulting arena and to provide former senior executives that operate as individual advisors a professional, nimble framework organization that provides a breadth of knowledge, experience and services across the travel, hospitality and restaurant technology industry, as well as other related sectors. Through GAIN, logically bundled senior advisory services are efficiently enabled through a consortium of best-in-breed advisors that meet multiple business requirements with specialist skill sets, so organizations don’t have to look for individual consultants in each discipline for every project.David Millili, Chairman of the Board of GAIN.
