Meet the Team: Robin Galaro

1. Where are you originally from?
A small town in suburban Connecticut named Bethel, it’s about an hour outside of New York City.

2. What is your favorite food?
I honestly don’t have a favorite food, I love everything. But since I’m Italian, I guess I would have to say Italian food.

3. What do you like/dislike about Dallas?
Coming from the northeast, I absolutely love how affordable everything is in Texas compared to where I’m from. I also love the wide variety of restaurants and bars in Dallas. I dislike the brutal Texas heat in the summer! I also hate Dallas traffic.

4. What do you miss the most about home?
I miss having 4 distinct seasons, especially autumn. New England autumn foliage is one of the most beautiful sights and I wish Texas had a real autumn season.

5. What college/university did you attend?
I attended the University of Alabama but transferred to and then graduated from the University of Connecticut with a bachelor’s degree in economics and business. Roll tide and Go Huskies!

6. How long have you worked for Kriya RevGEN?
I just hit my 1 year anniversary at Kriya RevGEN!

7. Did you have any previous experience?
Yes, I worked for Hilton’s Revenue Management Consolidated Center (RMCC) for almost 3 years as a Revenue Specialist.

8. What made you want to join the RevGEN team?
Having learned all my revenue management knowledge from one specific brand, I really wanted to gain exposure to other brands and get some additional insight into different systems and processes.

9. What is your favorite office lunch spot?
I’m a big fan of Our Place!

10. Favorite hotel chain/brand to manage?
I would say Hilton since I’m most familiar with that brand, but I really enjoy working with IHG as well.

11. What is your favorite sports team and why?
Alabama football and Connecticut basketball. Both teams won national championships while I was a student there so I’m an avid follower.

12. What genre of music sets the mood for your workday?
Gangsta rap

13. Name one thing about yourself that most people wouldn’t guess.
That I can speak several different languages.

14. Hobbies?
I love to travel! Any free time is usually spent exploring new areas or trying new things. I also play the piano and the guitar.

15. The most challenging and most rewarding part of your job?
The most challenging aspect of the job is the complexity of managing such a diverse portfolio of hotels and making sure each client gets the attention they need. The most rewarding aspect of the job is seeing your hard work pay off!
