NewBook Founder & CEO Brad Illich is excited to be part of the 2017 Queensland Government’s inaugural Young Tourism Leaders Program. Brad has had a very rewarding and successful career in the hospitality and tourism industry, starting his first business, Xtreme, as a sole trader in the year 2000. In 2010 he founded his second business, NewBook, which has quickly grown to become a leading cloud property management and reservations system. Brad’s entrepreneurial spirit has led to an array of Queensland business and tourism awards. He has extensive knowledge and passion for the hospitality and tourism industry and is looking forward to giving back to the community by sharing his experiences and acting as a role model for young people considering a long-term career in tourism. Brad will have the opportunity to mentor school leavers and young adults by speaking at several schools and universities throughout the year and he hopes many will follow his footsteps with a career in this industry.
