AHLA Forms Global Technology 100 Group

WASHINGTON—The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) announced the launch of the Global Technology 100 (T100), a group of hospitality technology leaders that will advise the hotel industry on leveraging the latest technology to better serve guests and maximize profitability.

T100 replaces three advisory groups within AHLA—HTNG’s Executive Leadership Group, Vendor Advisory Council, and the Industry Advisors. By bringing these groups together under the T100 banner, members can collaborate more closely and reach decisions more quickly.

Five industry leaders with hospitality technology expertise will lead T100:

  • Scott Strickland, EVP & CIO, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts (chair)
  • Luis Segredo, CEO, DataTravel LLC (vice chair)
  • Kristie Goshow, CCO, KSL Resorts (immediate past chair)
  • Jeff Bzdawka, CEO, Knowland (program & membership chair)
  • Bryan Hammer, VP of IT, Belmond (workgroup chair)

The chair of the group will rotate to ensure technology issues are debated with a view toward resolutions that benefit hoteliers and solution providers.


“T100 is all about ensuring our industry leverages the latest technology to better serve guests, associates, and communities while maximizing profitability,” said AHLA President and CEO Chip Rogers. “This group is composed of the top hospitality technology leaders on the planet, and together they will serve as the chief driver of innovation throughout our industry.”
