Philip Wolf

Serial Board Director and Founder of PhoCusWright

Philip Wolf, globally renowned travel guru, is the retired Chairman of PhoCusWright Inc., an independent travel, tourism and hospitality research firm specializing in the impact of technology and innovation on the world’s largest industry. The pioneer of Travel 2.0, he founded PhoCusWright in 1994 and grew the firm into the research authority on how travelers, suppliers and intermediaries connect. He is the architect of the annually acclaimed PhoCusWright Conference; the event’s provocative Center Stage themes are relied upon as industry bellwethers, quickly becoming accepted wisdom each year.

Prior to Phocuswright, Mr. Wolf was CEO of a venture-funded online travel booking engine pioneer which held two intellectual property patents. Mr. Wolf was an adjunct professor at New York University’s Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality Management, and a distinguished lecturer at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration.

He is a magna cum laude graduate of Duke University and holds an MBA from Vanderbilt University. He currently serves as a board director on three continents including two listed companies. Decades after first espousing the power of Internet travel, Philip continues to spark industry epiphanies ... and leave audiences buzzing.
