Stan Van Roij is a highly motivated and versatile executive who boasts a 20+ career spent entirely within the hospitality industry – over fifteen of which were in managerial roles. This strategic business planner, accomplished spokesman and problem solver is a results-oriented, self-confident leader and communicator with great financial acumen and a global perspective.

A Dutch native and speaker of four languages, Mr. Van Roij’s education includes a Hotel & Catering Management degree with emphasis on Business Management. He has also completed various leadership and personal development programs, affording him great facilitation and training skills.

Mr. Van Roij initially worked in a variety of roles within the Dutch hospitality industry in order to broaden his experience and apply his knowledge in practical settings, however the large part of his career was spent working his way up the managerial ranks for three major, global hotel chains. Such a solid and proven background has allowed him continued focus on the hospitality industry – for which he has always had real passion.

At Marriott Hotels International, where Mr. Van Roij remained for ten years, an initial role in the Purchase Department led to Area Director of Revenue Management, responsible for strategic and operational support to 40 branded hotels in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Realizing his obvious talent for the discipline and his proven ability to lead globally dispersed teams effectively, he went on to become VP of Revenue Development for Radisson SAS Hotels & Resorts, where he was responsible for the short- and long-term pricing, segmentation and accounts strategies for 150 hotels across Europe.

From 2004 to 2011, Mr. Van Roij held Director-level positions at NH Hoteles, managing group hotels first in the Netherlands and Belgium; then in Benelux, UK, France and Africa; finally taking on the role of Corporate Director of Revenue Management, based at NH headquarters in Madrid, where he was in charge of the total revenue strategy for NH Hoteles worldwide.

In 2011, Mr. Van Roij took a bold but confident step away from the operator side of the industry and into the realm of the hotel technology vendor. He is now Managing Director of EasyRMS, an Infor company, provider of SaaS Revenue & Yield Management software and consulting services. As an operator, he gained many years’ experience of EzRMS™ - the Revenue Management System provided by EasyRMS. This in-depth knowledge of a leading product in its field, along with his inspiring dedication to the hotel industry, will allow him to drive this growing company towards further, global success.

Coming Up In The May Online Hotel Business Review




Feature Focus
Eco-Friendly Practices: The Value of Sustainability
The hotel industry continues to make remarkable progress in implementing sustainability policies and procedures in their properties throughout the world. As a result, they continue to reap the benefits of increased profitability, enhanced guest experiences, and improved community relations. In addition, as industry standards are codified and adopted worldwide, hotels can now compare how their operations measure up against their competitors in terms of sustainable practices and accomplishments. This capacity to publicly compare and contrast is spurring competition and driving innovation as hotels do not wish to be left behind in this area. Water management and conservation is still a primary issue as population growth, urbanization, pollution and wasteful consumption patterns place increasing demands on freshwater supply. Water recycling; installing low-flow fixtures; using digital sensors to control water usage; and even harvesting rainwater are just a few things that some hotels are doing to preserve this precious resource. Waste management is another major concern. Through policies of reduce, reuse and recycle, some hotels are implementing “zero-waste” programs with the goal of substantially reducing their landfill waste which produces carbon dioxide and methane gases. Other hotels have established comprehensive training programs that reinforce the value of sustainability. There is employee engagement through posters and quizzes, and even contests are held to increase innovation, sensitivity and environmental awareness. Some hotels are also monitoring a guest’s energy usage and rewarding those who consumed less energy with gifts and incentives. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are integrating eco-friendly practices into their operations and how they and the environment are benefiting from them.
