#88 Larry Korman, President of AKA Hotel Residences, on Being 3D

Published on: 7th January, 2021

As we kick off with 2021, there’s a long road ahead of us. Larry Korman – design and travel extraordinaire – joins the show to share why he’s optimistic about the industry, and what you can do to keep innovating. 

AKA offers weekly and monthly stays in studio and one to two bedroom residences in beautiful buildings with personalised support. They have locations in NYC, Philadelphia, Washington DC, London and LA. It’s a division of Korman Communities, a four generation family-run real estate business since 1909 and pioneer of the furnished suite concept in 1966.

I love Larry’s bullish energy, and his insatiable desire to build a great team. Tune in as we explore value propositions, innovating remotely, digital partnerships, humanising experiences and how AKA succeeds by looking at things 3-dimensionally.

    Michael Tingsager

    I love to develop and grow hospitality and restaurant leaders to unleash their own and their organisations true potential by reframing thinking by putting people first.

    I believe and live by building hospitality and restaurants businesses from the inside out. When your employees love your company, your customers will love you — brand nirvana.

    I was born into the industry and learned the ropes on the frontline by working in the front of the house and heart the operation in my Mum and Dad's restaurants. Since then I've branched out. Over the years I've had different roles within operations and people - running and managing my own restaurants to being multi-unit operations and people director (+24 units/+250 employees) and working with global brands like McDonald’s for +11 years.

    At Hospitality Mavericks we are on a mission to inspire leaders and entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry to create profitable and heart-centred businesses from the inside out; the kind that both employees and customers love and support. Here you will find conversations with industry Mavericks who take a value-based approach to run their businesses whilst displaying a fierce passion for our industry. They Dare to be Different.
