Cornerstone Information Systems, one of the world’s largest privately owned travel technology companies, announced today that Phillip Tau, Business Development, was selected as one of PhoCusWright’s 35 Under 35 in the PhoCusWright Young Leaders Summit. The Young Leaders Summit recognizes rising stars in the travel industry and encourages executive development through experienced guest speakers, networking and an incubatory environment.
The summit showcases the important role young leaders play in the future growth of the travel, tourism and hospitality industry. The 35 people selected represent an elite group of ambitious professionals under the age of 35.

This year’s summit will be held in Los Angeles, California from November 10th through 13th in conjunction with The PhoCusWright Conference – the top annual event for the travel industry.

“It’s been great to work with Phil,” said Mat Orrego, CEO of Cornerstone. “He brings a fresh and innovative approach to working with our partners and customers. We are extremely proud of his selection for the Class of 35. He is an ambitious leader and a savvy professional and we look forward to what he will accomplish in the future having been part of this prestigious program”

“I am thrilled to be included in this year’s class; being recognized as a leader in travel is an honor. However, I am more excited to meet similar leaders within the industry to share ideas and drive innovative collaborative change,” said Phil.

Working in Business Development and Partner Relationships, Phil spends his time finding ways to extend Cornerstone’s platforms by bringing in new functionality through third-party applications and shipping Cornerstone’s functionality and expertise outside of the company. “My driving philosophy and approach to travel,” he says, “mirrors the words of the great one, Wayne Gretzky: skate to where the puck is going not where it is right now.”

The young professionals selected to participate in the summit are true achievers. PhoCusWright’s committee looks for smart, dedicated young people that are excited about working in travel. The Young Leaders Summit provides the platform for these key travel industry professionals to network with and be part of a collaborative and diverse community of peers.
