He leads the multidisciplinary teams at GOCO Hospitality and Horwath HTL Health and Wellness to strategise, conceptualise, design and manage the latest wellness developments for the world’s top hospitality and real estate brands. From individual hotel spas to dedicated wellness resorts and master-planned mixed-use developments, Ingo’s experience and insights have taken over 400 projects worth more than US$3.5 billion across upwards of 42 countries from initial idea to profitable realisation and on-going management.
Ingo maintains a creative lead in the management and development of all GOCO-branded spas and retreats and is the Managing Director of Horwath HTL Health and Wellness. Ingo also owns and manages Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Southern California, the United States’ oldest and highest-grossing hot spring resort.
