Sales Careers at Expedia Group – Meet Ashish
Ashish is from our Gurgaon office starting in September 2017 and joining as an Associate Market Manager in our Lodging Partner Services. In this role he was awarded the ‘Star of the Quarter’. In July 2019 he moved into our business travel brand, Egencia, as Corporate Sales Manager. He is proud to make an impact in his sales markets, “Travel helps me learn about different cultures, how they’ve evolved and relate to one another. It connects the world and brings people closer together.” In his current role, “solving the new-age business travel problems has become (his) new-found passion.”
A typical day for an Egencian
“My typical day would include interacting with potential and existing clients to strengthen our business partnerships. It’s motivating and challenging at the same time to match our value offering to the business requirement of customers.” It’s an experience Ashish relishes, “Expedia Group provides the turf to experiment, unlearn and learn which gears me up for real-time market challenges.”
