Founder and CEO, Brad Illich, was no stranger to the tourism industry when the idea for NewBook was born in 2010. Brad’s family has owned and operated RV parks on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane for more than four decades, awarding him with the vision and understanding that inspired his first solo venture. Not one for wasting any time, Brad launched Xtreme IT at the age of 17 to provide website development and IT services to the Gold Coast tourism industry.
This project would soon become the catalyst for developing a comprehensive property management solution designed for any size or complexity of business. A mere ten years later, at the age of 27, this solution came to life in the form of NewBook. Since its inception, Brad has received countless accolades recognising his efforts to positively impact the tourism industry through the use of technology.
Brad’s ingrained knowledge has made him a sought-after speaker across Australia and internationally, inspiring both young and old to explore the business of hospitality. Brad has spoken at industry-related conferences around the globe to share his lessons and insights, motivating business owners to achieve success through harnessing the power of innovation.
