Commenting on the recent rebrand, Next Story Group’s chief executive officer Anand Nadathur said “The hospitality landscape is changing and we’re involving in important ways.
“Over the past year we’ve developed in-house architecture and design capabilities via Virsa, identified new media marketing competency as a must-have which led to the acquisition of Brand Karma, strengthened our employees and Board, and studied the impact of the sharing economy on urban spaces.”
“We now have the right set of specialised services, and are ready to move forward to help asset owners future-proof their real estate by giving consumers something fresh and relevant,” said Nadathur.

The approach the company has developed will create new value in the marketplace for the owners and the consumers, and I look forward to guiding the team to expand their vision.”
