Greg O'Hara, Senior managing director
How I Got Here is a weekly podcast from PhocusWire and Mozio, getting the inside stories behind innovation and startups in travel and transportation.
An astute and outspoken financial operator, O'Hara's influence in travel has grown considerably in recent years through the Certares investment vehicle, as he explains to David Litwak or Mozio and PhocusWire's Kevin May.
Greg O'Hara has become an influential player on the travel scene since he joined Sabre in the 1990s.
He admits to quitting roles after falling out with management - or getting fired - on a number of occasions in the intervening years before creating the Certares private equity vehicle in 2012.
But that experience at Sabre, Worldspan and JPMorgan has created an astute, tactical and outspoken financial operator, with interests and investments through Certares at Liberty Tripadvisor, AmaWaterways, G Adventures, Getaway, LATAM Airlines and, perhaps the most high-profile, American Express Global Business Travel.
O'Hara joins us as the latest guest on How I Got Here.
