The founder, sole shareholder and CEO of HOTELINVEST, Thomas Wührer, originates from an established hotel owner dynasty from Bad Gastein, Austria. There his family owned the famous Parkhotel Bellevue, the Alpine Bellevue, the Sporthotel and the legendary Bellevue Alm chalet. At first Thomas Wührer continued this tradition and finished an education as a hotel businessman. Later he collected valuable experiences in the international hotel-business and worked in leading hotels in Vienna, Geneva, Paris, Monte Carlo, London and Florence.
Double education and wide experience
In America (Dallas, Texas), Thomas Wührer built up together with an American partner one - at this time – of the biggest tour operator agencies. After that, he studied marketing at the Bavarian academy in Munich (with master degree) and then he studied management at the University of Salzburg and concluded with a master in management. With this background Thomas Wührer knows the hotel business from a practical and professional perspective. He has seen the layouts and developments in this special branch and the results from close nearness. Therefore, he disposes of the general necessary economic expert's assessment as well as of specific knowledge for this branch and experiences in the hotel management. So he sees possible weak spots and potentials with the eyes of the hotel management as well as from the perspective of the investor.
