Berlin, Germany (6 March 2018): Tina Yu, Senior Vice President of KSL Capital Partners was awarded the prestigious ISHC Young Leader Award at the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF) with an audience of over 2000 senior leaders from 80 countries worldwide. The International Society of Hospitality Consultants (ISHC) presented Yu the award in partnership with Questex Hospitality Group, the organizers of the IHIF conference.

Andrea Belfanti, ISHC Executive Director commented, “It is quite impressive the career Tina Yu has had under the age of 30. She is respected and well known in the industry. We are thankful for Questex Hospitality Group and our successful partnership that has allowed us to recognise 10 young professionals for their leadership and advancement of our industry with the Young Leader Award.”

Yu works in the European office for KSL Capital Partners, a leading private equity firm. She began working for KSL in 2011 and has a background in investment banking.

Tess Pearson, Event Director for IHIF said on behalf of Questex, “Recognising talented young individuals from within the hospitality industry is always a highlight of the event but that this year’s conference took place in the same week as we celebrated International Women’s Day, gave particular merit to the extraordinary achievements of this young woman in her career so far. Congratulations Tina and we wish you all the best for continued success.”

The Young Leader Award was established by ISHC and IHIF in 2009 to recognise and celebrate the excellence of young emerging leaders in the hospitality industry. Nominees for the award must be 35 years of age or younger whose contributions are already making an impact on the hospitality industry.
