Young N. Nguyen – CEO and Founder

Young N. Nguyen
Young N. NguyenCEO and Founder
A true thought leader, Young has heavily influenced the way hospitality leadership views and manages their operations for over a decade. Rolling forecast and productivity excellence are concepts closely associated with Young, particularly in Northern Europe.

He is deeply passionate about hospitality but is less than enthusiastic about its often tradition-bound, “mindless” management which nurtures inertia for change and innovation.

Simplicity, he asserts, can only be achieved by those who understand complexity. Conversely, competitive advantage can be achieved by those who solve complex problems with simplicity. His mission has earned him many awards and made him a popular speaker.

He completed hospitality management studies at Glion. After this, he attended a number of executive courses at Cornell University, the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) and Heriot-Watt University.

There are very few – if any – functions Henrik doesn’t intimately know in hotel and restaurant operations. It is not only because he has spent more than 20 years in hospitality business in multiple countries, but also because he has kept close ties with the industry’s senior leadership.

Henrik truly is relentlessly curious and keen to learn different ways of thinking and doing things. He sees himself as exceptionally privileged to have ample opportunities to interact with some of the brightest minds in the industry. This lets him take part in resolving complex issues and requirements across continents.

He never stops to marvel at how things can be redesigned to help hoteliers get their daily job done in a smarter way tomorrow.

Henrik completed his B.Sc. in Hospitality Management with first-class honors from Oxford Brookes University.
