Mary Gostelow, LATTE‘s weekly columnist and industry icon, has been recognised on the global stage, named in the International Hospitality Institute’s 100 Most Powerful People in Global Hospitality.

Every week she reaches 70,000 HNW financial consumers worldwide via Mary Gostelow Breakfast Club (Enness Lifestyle, for whom she is Global Ambassador). She is also Global Ambassdor for ILTM, whose annual Lifetime Award is named in her honour.
Gostelow also shares her expert accommodation and experience reviews, recounts and event analysis for LATTE, on a weekly basis.
This latest accolade entrenches Gostelow alongside the likes of The Travel Corporation’s President and Founder of Red Carnation Hotels, Beatrice Tollman; Aman Resorts’ CEO Vladislav Doronin; Oberoi Group’s Executive Chairman, Prithvi Raj Singh Oberoi; Preferred Hotel & Resorts CEO, Lindsey Ueberroth; Carnival Cruise Lines’ President, Christine Duffy; outgoing CEO of the US Travel Association, Roger Dow; and Marriott International’s Chairman of the Board, David Marriott, alongside CEO, Anthony Capuano.
