Giovanni Coppa is an innovative Italian entrepreneur and expert in international hospitality. He actively lives and works between London and New York City. Giovanni is a passionate leader who excels at developing strong business networks, empowering companies to reach peak performance.
In late 2009, Giovanni assumed sole ownership of Holiday Estates Limited, a UK-based accommodations provider. By the start of 2013, he had recovered his investment and lead the company to tremendous success. In this time span, Holiday Estates Ltd more than doubled the previous decade’s earning potential. It was during this year that Giovanni was inspired to launch Holiday Estates USA, a New York City subsidiary.
HEUSA would prove to challenge hospitality norms and shake up the industry in a major way. It was the first accommodation provider in New York City to offer fully customizable travel experiences, offering everything from lodging to entertainment. It was Giovanni’s vision for HEUSA to make concierge services accessible to the everyday person.
Prior to his work with Holiday Estates, Giovanni worked as an accomplished sports journalist in Italy, following teams like Chelsea and events such as the Giro d’Italic. He graduated from Sapienza Università di Roma with a degree in Law in 2006. Giovanni is an active member of Community Board 5 and a member of ASTA, the American Society of Travel Agents. In his spare time, Giovanni enjoys reading and volunteering with his wife, Nadia, at the Mid-Manhattan Library.
