Armin Molavi is Principal of Amolavi Consulting, a Marketing Strategy firm, and CEO of Hotel Business Magazine. We talked about finding the balance between being your authentic self and fully embracing who you are, and being able to work with a diverse group of stakeholders – peers, direct reports, bosses, clients.

We also discussed his experience managing a distributed team while working remotely for 3 years, and how those lessons apply to managers who are navigating the new post-pandemic hybrid model.

Given his experience at the heart of the hospitality industry as the publisher of a business to business magazine for the sector, Armin also shared the industry perspective and expectation for the return of travel.

Armin has more than 20 years of experience in marketing and advertising. After coming up through the ranks in two of the best advertising agencies in the country, Armin spent almost 3 years running global media for Hilton. In that capacity, he managed a distributed team of 70 people, scattered all over the globe. And he did that working mostly remotely.
